Firefighters on duty at the Cagayan de Oro City Fire District Office along Capt. Vicente Roa Street successfully rescued a 9-month pregnant woman and assisted in her emergency baby delivery along the road right in front of the fire station at around 6:10pm last Monday night.
Ms Janet Diocoño was already in an “on-going labor” with the baby’s head already visible when firefighters and rescue personnel on duty rushed to the scene at the edge of the road.
With proper training, the fire station’s emergency medical team successfully assisted in the delivery of the baby boy. After the delivery, both the mother and his baby boy were then transported to the Northern Mindanao Medical Center of Cagayan de Oro City for further medical care.
