Blakeney and Queener were on duty when the call came out that a passenger in a vehicle was about to give birth. It seems that the mother was on the way to the hospital when she "ran out of time." Her driver stopped the car on South Seivers Blvd where police called for assistance. The two firemen, first on scene with any medical training, were able to help the expectant mother complete a successful delivery.
