CHEVIOT, OH (FOX 19) -  The Cheviot Fire Department had a special delivery overnight: Twins! 

A mother, Charley Moore-Jackson, gave birth to a girl and boy in the front driveway of Station 16 on Harrison Avenue just after 12:30 a.m. Friday. She went into labor in the backseat of her parents' brand new Ford Escape, said Firefighter David Miller, who delivered her son."Mother and babies are doing great," he said. 

The woman's father was driving her to Good Samaritan Hospital when it became clear they were not going to make it in time.

He pulled over in front of the firehouse and delivered his granddaughter in the backseat.Firefighter David Miller arrived in time to deliver the boy, the second baby delivery of his career.

"Each one is unique," he said. "In childbirth, mom is the hero, so you just try to give supportive care."

The squad was on a run and the only person left in the house assisted Charley's father with the delivery. The family was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital after Mason and MacKenzie were born.

The woman managed to warn Miller that doctors had advised her the other twin, a boy, would be born breech. That made for a few tense moments.

"We were able to prep a little bit so we would be ready for that and, sure enough, he came out in a breech presentation," Miller said. "He pinked up pretty quickly and cried and that's when the tension went down." 

The woman and her infants went onto the hospital, where she apologized to her mother for giving birth in the new car."Grandma made it real clear that healthy kids and healthy mom were the most important things," Miller said. "She told her 'don't worry about the car.'"

A statement was released from Charley Moore-Jackson and her husband John Moore:

"We would like to publicly say thank you to the Cheviot Fire Department and EMTs for doing CPR and reviving Mason and coming to check on us in the hospital."
