Brave Bauko Firefighter Helps Deliver Baby in a Car

Celebrate Bauko's heroic firefighter, whose swift response ensured the safe arrival of a baby during a car birth.

Bauko, Mt. Province - In a remarkable act of bravery, a firefighter in Bauko assisted in delivering a baby inside a car. This incredible event unfolded quickly, highlighting the dedication of our local heroes.

Here's how it happened: a young couple from Monamon Norte in a rush to get to the Luis Hora Memorial Regional Hospital in Abatan because their second child was about to be born. They were running out of time.

Coincidentally, Fire Officer 3 Efrain Ngade, who is also a nurse, happened to be nearby. He was attending a meeting at the Sadsadan Fire Sub-station when they heard a car screeching to a halt in front of the Rural Health Unit.

Rushing to the scene, Station Commander SFO3 Sherwin Cogasi and his team found a pregnant woman in the car, with the baby's head already visible. There was no time to waste.

"Iti abay mi ditoy ket RHU, ket diay ipan da kuma idiay Luis Hora idi kwa ket makitkita da nga rumrumwaren diay ubing... dinagas da ditoy RHU. Ustu met nga idi agbusina, ket madama meeting mi ket ni apay nga kasla adda napaspas nga lugan tapos nagbusina isu nga nagpa-recess ni commander," Ngade narrated.

Without hesitation, Ngade used his nursing skills to assist in the baby's delivery, right there in the car. The delivery went smoothly, and both the mother and the baby were then taken to the hospital for further care.

This wasn't the first time Ngade had been involved in such an event. Back in 2016, during his time with the Bureau of Fire Protection, he had also played a crucial role in helping with a roadside birth.

This heartwarming story from Bauko reminds us of the bravery and commitment of our local firefighters. It shows that heroes are present in our communities, ready to help during critical moments.

In a world filled with uncertainties, stories like this renew our belief in the kindness of people and the strength of our community.

A heartfelt thank you to our local firefighters for their quick thinking and selfless actions. You are true heroes!
