Firefighters and Paramedics Help Deliver Baby

 
A woman gave birth to a healthy baby boy in the Williamson County Justice Center last week with the help of some Georgetown firefighters and paramedics from Williamson County EMS.
There was no time to get to the hospital first, so after a very short labor, firefighters and paramedics delivered the baby in a women’s restroom at the County court building on MLK, Jr. Street.  Kingston Alexander Powell was born at 2:19 p.m. on August 19.
Mother Shiela Threadgill and father Terence Powell were recognized at the City Council meeting on Tuesday night. Georgetown Fire Chief John Sullivan presented the Stork Award to the Georgetown firefighters who assisted with the “field birth” of the baby. Chief Sullivan also presented a coin of excellence from the Fire Department to the Williamson County EMS paramedics for their role in the delivery.  
Threadgill and baby Kingston were both taken to the hospital after the unexpected delivery last week. Both are now healthy and doing well.
