Mass. National Guard, EMT Deliver Baby in Storm

babyWORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — The Massachusetts National Guard and Worcester emergency workers have teamed up to deliver a baby during the overnight snowstorm.

Maj. Gen. Scott Rice said Saturday that the baby arrived at about 3 a.m. and everyone is fine. He didn’t release details about the family.

He said the guard had emergency vehicles placed in Worcester to help local public safety because of hilly terrain and heavy snowfall. About 28.5 inches were reported in the central Massachusetts city.

Rice said a National Guard ambulance with a medic took a Worcester EMT to the family’s house and they worked together to deliver the baby.

He said, “You can’t get much better than that.”
