BOSTON — Two quick-thinking Boston EMS workers snatched a newborn baby from the brink of death early yesterday morning in the parking lot of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

The duo were not even part of the same crew, but happened to be at the hospital on separate calls when a woman ran into the emergency room saying a baby was being born in the parking lot.

EMT Todd Ritch, assigned to A-13 in Jamaica Plain, left his recruit trainees and raced outside, followed by EMT Natalie Grillo, assigned to the nightside shift.
