Firefighters deliver first triplet in Salt Lake

LAST UPDATED: 12:20 a.m. HST, Apr 21, 2013

Honolulu firefighters helped a Salt Lake woman deliver the first of a set of triplets at an apartment complex on Likini Street Saturday.

According to Honolulu Fire Department spokesperson Capt. Gary Lum, firefighters were called to the third-floor apartment unit around 10:40 a.m. when the woman went into labor.

The firefighters helped the woman deliver the first child, then carried her downstairs so paramedics could transport her to a nearby hospital, where the other two children were delivered.

Trying to save money by not calling the paramedics? Time to reimburse the fire department and the taxpayer.

Ambulance was right behind. Babies are not predictable, especially multiples. Who knows what alarm clock went off in the womb. Hope for the best for the babies. Triplets! Wow! That's a lot work.
