Baby born at Gaithersburg fire station

By Washington Post editors

It was, in the mother's words, something that happens on a sitcom -- not in real life, WJLA reports.

While en route the hospital early Thursday morning, Erin and Christian Presley ran out of time.

Their son was supposed to be born on Monday. He couldn't wait. So the two pulled over at a fire station at 3 a.m.

Firefighter Michael Skidmore woke up and delivered the baby.

"I'm thinking, okay. Do I have to do it right here?" Skidmore said. "Well, unfortunately we do. That's the nature of our business."

The birth went well. And later that day, the Presleys' other three children, ages 7, 4, and 2, met their baby brother.

Which fire station? I'm assuming it's the one on Montgomery Village and Russell Aves, but there are several fire stations in G-burg.

This is news because the parents are not illegals - a rarity for County Montgomerico.
