NEW YORK (AP) - A New York City firefighter had to miss his daughter’s birthday to help bring another life into the world.

The New York Daily News reports (https://nydn.us/29JgA39 ) Lt. Kevin Roth showed up just in time Thursday night to a Queens home, where emergency responders were called for an “imminent birth.”

Roth and four firefighters got her to lie down and gave her oxygen before seeing the baby boy’s head emerge and helping deliver him safely.

Roth tells the newspaper his daughter was a “little upset” that he had to work on her 14th birthday, but perked up when he texted her, “I hope you don’t mind sharing your birthday with a baby boy, because we just delivered one.”
