HFD TO HOST RECOGNITION CEREMONY FOR EMERGENCY RESPONDERS

HUDSON, IL.- Emergency responders who were called to assist a woman in labor and then helped in the emergency delivery of the Minonk resident’s baby on April 30, 2014 at the southbound Exit Two of Interstate 39 near north Normal, will be recognized at the Hudson Fire Station on Tuesday, July 15, 2014 at 7 pm.

Emergency responders involved, including Hudson Fire Department Emergency Medical Technicians Chris Wasowicz and Matt Zielsdorf, will be cited for their role in aiding Amanda Bradbury, and her husband Kyle, who were en route to the hospital when her contractions began to be one to two minutes apart. The couple called 911 and then was instructed to pull over and await help from emergency personnel.

Members of the Hudson Police and Normal Fire Department also responded to the scene and assisted.

"It's not every day that you deliver a baby alongside the interstate," said Hudson Fire Chief Dan Hite in a quote from an article that shortly following the event in the Pantagraph. "It's a very rewarding experience. It's a wonderful thing to bring a new life into the world and be a part of that experience. The guys did a super job and I'm very proud of everybody who was involved."
