A grateful mum has thanked Dublin Fire Brigade for their help in assisting with the safe arrival of her baby boy who was delivered in the back of an ambulance on the way to hospital. 

Melika Djemai took to Twitter to praise the team after her baby son was in too much of a hurry to wait until they got to the hospital.

“A baby boy was in a hurry this morning and wasn't prepared to wait for Mum to get to hospital,” the fire brigade tweeted on September 11.

“Firefighter/paramedics from Tallaght fire station assisted Mum with the delivery in our ambulance and both are now doing well.”

In reply, Melika tweeted: “This was me!!! Not sure if I am quite over the shock. Thanks so so much to Andy, Liam and Ash (I think that’s who the team was) for assisting with the safe arrival of my gorgeous boy Ísa.”

The fire brigade replied: “Hi ya, glad everything worked out for you and Ísa. Yep, it was indeed Andy, Liam and Aisling. I'll pass your message on.”

People delighted in the good news with many messages of congratulations following the post.

“Many congrats on a new baby boy enjoy the rest! Your live has certainly got more eventful. A happy life to you all. Well done to the ambulance crew heroes,” Cllr Barry Saul said.

“Many congratulations on your new (and speedy) arrival! And congratulations to the crew too,” added Cllr Sharon Tolan.
