Leeds Fire & Rescue delivers baby boy at the station

Leeds Fire & Rescue have seen many things in their careers, and some can now add baby delivery to their resume.

At about 6:30 a.m. Thursday, firefighters helped deliver a baby boy in a car in the parking lot of the Leeds Fire & Rescue station.

On duty were Capt. Kyle Shell, Chase Armstrong, Josh Rossetti, Brandon Roberson and Morgan Norsworthy. Shell got the call when he was at the gym, and sprinted back to the station to lend a hand; Norsworthy wasn’t even supposed to be there.

“I had changed shifts with someone a while back, and this was my time covering for him,” Norsworthy said.

Norsworthy, a paramedic, said the mother arrived at approximately 6 a.m. and was already in labor. The staff on the scene assisted her at her car. By 6:30 a.m., he was riding with the mother and her newborn to Grandview Medical Center to assure that they arrived safely. He left them in their new room.

The family posted thanks to the Leeds paramedics on social media.
