MOST BABY news at the moment is coming from London as royal fans camp outside St. Mary's hospital.
However, a baby boy made a rather dramatic entry into the world at the weekend, with the assistance of the Strandhill-based Coast Guard.
The new baby becomes the first to be born with the help of the new Sikorsky S-92 helicopter.
The search and rescue crew carried out an emergency medical evacuation from Arranmore island in Co. Donegal on Friday night.
A spokesperson for the Malin Coast Guard said:
"We received an emergency call at 8.20pm. The Sligo-based helicopter was dispatched and left Arranmore island at 21:13, arriving at Letterkenny hospital eleven minutes later."
A short while after touching down at the hospital, the new arrival was delivered by winchman Gary Robertson.
