"A trainee emergency services controller guided the family before the arrival of our fire engine and ambulance. He was being mentored at the time. The ambulance had an advanced paramedic and a trainee paramedic from Dublin airport fire service on board doing his internship."

According to Dublin Fire Brigade the mum and baby are both doing well.

Recently the fire brigade delivered baby Aubrey who was born just in time for Christmas.
