Maryland Firefighter Delivers Baby in Station Lot

GAITHERSBURG, Md. - A Montgomery County mother says she knew she wouldn't make it to the hospital to give birth, so she had the baby in a fire station parking lot.

Erin and Christian Presley's son was due on Monday, but then he couldn't wait any longer. On the way to Shady Grove Adventist Hospital on Thursday, Erin Presley says she knew she had to push, so they pulled over into the Gaithersburg Volunteer Fire Department at 3 a.m.

Christian Presley says he rang the doorbell, but no one answered, and then he called 911. Firefighter Michael Skidmore woke up and helped deliver the infant in the parking lot.

The couple's three other children met their baby brother later in the day at the hospital.
