As Tanisha Andrade, age 12, and Boston EMS EMT Sara Curry were about to be honored by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ 9-1-1 Awards for helping to deliver Tanisha’s sister Jeilianna Carvalho, the 10 week old opened her eyes very wide. Tanisha was in a car with her mom when her mom went into labor. She was talked through the delivery, over the phone, by Curry. Please see my photo below for the Boston Herald.

As many were getting ready to sit with family and feast on all the good things that Thanksgiving has to offer, Boston firefighters, EMS and police were responding to a multi-vehicle accident. They eased the pain of a small child, an infant and several adults who were hurt in the late morning accident that occurred near the Broadway bridge. Please see my photos below. In top photo, firefighter Edward Kelly of Ladder 17 is seen calming a young boy. Brian Carey of Rescue 1 holds an infant in the next photo. In the Third photo, an unidentified Boston EMS member holds the same infant. Story here.
