North Carolina firefighters responding to an emergency medical call found themselves in a situation none of them had training for!
After assessing the situation and determining the family's father would need to be rushed to the nearest hospital along with his wife for medical attention, members of Harrisburg Fire Department’s Engine-3 suddenly became babysitters for their two young boys.
Chris Carter, a Harrisburg Fire Department firefighter told Fox 46, "We were dispatched for a medical call and [when we] got there the patient needed to be transported along with his wife, so the parents had to leave two children in the house".
Although none of the firemen have any children of their own, they were a part of a 3-year-old's special birthday party back in September.
Lee Dewitt, another responding firefighter told Fox 46, “We all knew what needed to be done. So we needed to get the family the medical help they needed right away and it just became natural that we were all ready to just take care of the kids until grandma and grandpa were able to get there and take over".
The firemen ended up playing hot wheels with the two boys, ages 1 and 7, and pushed them around in toy cars in their driveway for a half hour before their grandparents arrived.
