It took seven firefighters from Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service and two anxious parents-to-be before Gabriella entered the world during this winter’s heaviest snowfall.
Rescue workers from Silver Spring’s Fire Station #1 were called to an “imminent delivery” at an apartment complex on East-West Highway at 3 a.m., March 14.
“It was right during the middle” of the storm, and it was sleeting out, said Jay Miller, master firefighter and paramedic.
A fire engine and an ambulance arrived to find a mother about to give birth to her first child. “She was crowning when we got there,” Miller said.
