A new baby girl came healthily into the world early Christmas morning, on the side of the road, with the help of Vallejo Fire Department personnel, an agency spokeswoman said Wednesday.
The 7-pound infant was delivered about 3 a.m. by fire department paramedics in the back of a Medic ambulance on Tuolumne Street near Broadway Street, Engineer Dyhanne Strohmeyer said.
As the ambulance took off with the woman in labor, the expectant father followed in a car, Strohmeyer said.
"When the baby started coming, we pulled over and he ran up, and we let him in, and he started crying," she said. "They were hugging each other. It was very sweet."
