A new mother made a special stop to thank the firefighters who helped deliver her baby.

“I’m so thankful that you guys were here,” said Aurora’s mother, Destiny Hatfield.

Sometimes babies like little Aurora just can’t wait. The newborn was decked out in a specially knitted firefighter uniform for the visit.

Hatfield said she was trying to get to Saint Luke’s East Hospital last Thursday when during the drive, she knew she wasn’t going to make it.

“She was coming. She was ready,” Hatfield said.

That’s when she saw Lee’s Summit Fire Station No. 5.

“I was outside contracting, and my mom said, ‘Let me run inside.’ And she ran in here,” Hatfield said.

“She said, ‘Well, my daughter’s in labor out in the parking lot,'” firefighter Shelby Seelinger said.

The EMT ambulance crew was out on a call but the pumper crew was there, and moments later, so was Aurora.

“As soon as the baby came out and was crying and breathing fine then you know all the stress kind of went away,” firefighter Ben Gray said.

The fire department said that it’s always best to call 911 in this kind of a situation because the fire crew might be out on a call but they said the timing on baby Aurora worked out perfectly.

“When we’re put in the situation, it’s just a training-kicks-in type of feeling,” Seelinger said.

After several days in the hospital, Hatfield and Aurora are doing great. Baby Aurora went home to an older sister and brother over the weekend. They wanted to let these firefighters know how much they appreciated their help.
