Fire crews praised for coming to rescue of mum Alexandra and 'speedy' newborn Adam
Fire crews are being praised for coming to the rescue of a Dublin mum who went into labour in her living room on Sunday evening.
Dublin Fire Brigade dispatched their Balbriggan crew to the scene when they received an emergency call and realised Baby Adam's arrival was "imminent".
A spokesperson said; "The call taker stayed on the line providing reassurance and instructions until the arrival of the fire engine D231."
The fire crews arrived at the scene just minutes before Adam arrived.

An ambulance from Swords arrived to the house shortly afterwards to transport a healthy mum and baby to the hospital.
"Congratulations to mum Alexandra and baby Adam whom made a speedy arrival this evening," Dublin Fire Brigade wrote online.
"We're glad to say that mum and baby are doing well, and so are the fire crew."
The crews were praised under the social media post, with one person writing; "Bless you guys, absolutely amazing work."
Another wrote; "Well done to the mummy and the DFB, I too had the 'pleasure of their company' on my daughters speedy arrival at home 3 years ago. Amazing people."
