Well done! SCDF paramedics help couple deliver baby boy right in their home

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) do not just save lives -- they help to bring life into our beautiful world too.

On Apr 7 at around 8.25am, three paramedics from the SCDF helped Facebook user Kean Ho Zhiqian and his wife deliver their baby in their five-room flat at Block 54, Kent Road

In a heartfelt Facebook post, Ho expressed his gratitude and appreciation towards the team for their professionalism and aid.

The 39-year-old mini-mart operator wrote:

"I would like to convey my appreciation and heartfelt gratitude to the paramedic officers from Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) Ambulance AB 113, namely: Prm Kitshan (officer-in-charge), medic Shafiq Rhymia and medic Samo Iqbal.

"Officer-in-charge Kitshan had delivered my baby boy in my own house this morning at approximately 8.25am. She was very experienced, composed and exceedingly professional in the delivery of my 2nd baby boy. I hereby pay kudos to her and pay utmost respect to her and her teammates for their assistance.

"My wife and baby are well taken care of and in good hands. SCDF indeed train their staff well. Their performance was remarkable and my family felt that we were in good hands under the care of Officer Kitshan.

"My wife and baby are now in the hospital resting. I hereby wish to send my gratefulness to the SCDF officers especially Officer Kitshan for being there for us.

"We understand that SCDF do not allow any hampers or gifts as appreciation so hereby we can only express our respect to you via email and Facebook. Thank you yet again."

Asking people to help tag the three heroes in his post should anyone know them, Ho also added that he has also sent an official letter of appreciation to SCDF's Quality Service Officer Colonel Ng for the tremendous effort rendered.
