A Thai couple who traveled to South Korea from their home country found themselves in a difficult situation with labor pains that came earlier than their due date, but thanks to 119 paramedics, they were given a new lease of life in an ambulance.
The Gangwon Special Self-Governing Province Fire and Rescue Department received a call at around 6:10 a.m. yesterday (Feb. 2) that a woman was having a baby in Goseong.
Ms. A, a Thai pregnant woman in her 40s, who suddenly experienced severe labor pains more than a month before her due date at the end of September, asked for help from an acquaintance, who immediately called 119 for assistance.
Paramedics from the Goseong Fire Department responded to the scene, checked Ms. A’s biorhythms and labor intervals, and headed to Gangneung Regional Hospital.
However, just seven minutes into their journey, signs of impending labor appeared, including the fetal head being visible.
Since they were already on the highway and unable to stop the ambulance, the paramedics assisted in the delivery under the guidance of medical staff in the ambulance, and the mother finally gave birth to a healthy baby boy at around 7:05 am.
Crews worked to stabilize the mother and baby’s circadian rhythms by using warming blankets to keep them warm and giving fluids to the mother, whose blood pressure had dropped.
The mother and child were transferred to the hospital in good condition around 8am.
Through an interpreter, Mr. and Mrs. A, who do not speak Korean, repeatedly thanked the paramedics, saying, “I was very embarrassed when I suddenly went into labor in the early hours of the morning, but I am so grateful that the paramedics helped me deliver.”
Paramedics Lee Chang-hyop, Kim Yuran, and Shin Ha-hyun, who helped Ms. A through the birth, said, “I was panicked because it was difficult to communicate, but the first aid methods I had learned and the guidance of the medical staff helped me stay calm.” “I am so grateful and happy that the baby was born safely.”
Firefighter Kim Yuran, who received the baby, told KBS, “I became a firefighter less than a month ago after serving in the military for 10 years as a nurse officer, and I received the baby in an ambulance.” “The emergency delivery class I took at the fire academy was helpful, 카지노사이트킴 and I am grateful that the baby was born healthy,” she said.
