PLANTATION, FL -- A south Florida woman and her newborn baby helped break-in a brand new ambulance.
Broward Sheriff firefighters were settling in to their new truck, Rescue 14, and preparing it for service when a call came in about a woman going into labor.
WSVN-TV reports when crews arrived on scene they found Evelyn Garcia, 45, on the verge of giving birth.
"We knew once we got there, we had to move quickly," Lt. Jordan Shaver tells WSVN.
They put Garcia in transit to the nearest medical center, but the baby wouldn't wait. Garcia ended up giving birth to her healthy baby boy inside the brand new ambulance.
"They arrived, and in five minutes he was born. It was fast," Garcia told WSVN. "He wanted to be born in the ambulance; he didn't wait to get to the hospital."
Rescuers tell WSVN that everyone is healthy, and the paramedics credit stocking the new truck's equipment with helping everything run smoothly because they knew right away where everything was.
The baby boy is Garcia's second child and his name is Jeremy. null
