It was a slow day for the busy fire station in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, when the call came in on November 11, 2011. Fireflghter Marc Hadden, who worked with the medical unit, was eating dinner in the middle of his 24-hour shift when he had to hop in the ambulance and head out to the emergency. He and his partner found a woman in labor, and as soon as they got her in the ambulance she was ready to give birth. Hadden took charge — his first time ever being in charge of a delivery in 20 years of his work, according to a story on CBS News.
Little did the firefighter know at that moment that he was helping his own daughter take her first breath.
