Dad-to-be knocks on medics' door at 3 a.m. for baby delivery

By the time the man got to the ambulance base, the baby's head was already crowning

KMOV

ST. CHARLES COUNTY, Mo. – Employees of a local paramedics branch say they were going about their work shift earlier this month when they got quite a surprise.

According to officials, on Jan. 8, Brad Limbaugh of Wright City rang the doorbell to the St Charles County Ambulance District Base 15 in the 1120 block of Fiese Rd. around 3 a.m.

“My wife’s having a baby, now, her water just broke,” Limbaugh told them.

Wayland Slater Wayland Slater Friday, January 25, 2013 8:39:20 AM That's what I was going to say. The door bell at our main station was used a few times and it would be someone drunk and/or stoned. We would check them out to be sure that was all that was wrong. If that wasn't aggravating enough, but when they would refuse transport, that's when we got upset. A few would do it just because they didn't want to go to the ER. We finally told the repeats that if they ever did it again we would take them to the ER or to the PD that was in walking distance for mis-use of the EMS service.
