(CBS4) – A Colorado family visited West Metro firefighters on Saturday to thank them for helping in the unusual birth of their daughter. Maggie and Steve Reilly gave birth to their daughter on their front lawn in Roxborough Park.
Wren Reilly was born at about 2 a.m. Sunday, March 7.
Maggie Reilly woke up after midnight due to contractions. As she and her husband, Steve, were packing to head to the hospital, it became clear that the baby’s birth was imminent so they called 911.
West Metro Fire Rescue’s Medic 13 crew just happened to be two blocks away. They were joined by Engine 15 and within about two minutes of being on scene, Wren was born.
The family stopped by Station 15 on Saturday to visit with the crew.
