"I heard the officer say, you we need an EMS for a woman in labor, about three seconds later I hear the officer's voice kick up a notch. ‘We got a baby, we got a baby’,” said Lt. Frank Sheeran, Boston EMS.

Sheeran got to the scene just in time. "As I approached Deputy O'Hare turned around with the baby and passed me the baby,” Sheeran said. A baby girl was delivered in the front seat of the car.
