YONKERS -

Four firefighters helped deliver a baby during Thursday's snowstorm in Yonkers.

The department got a call around 4:30 p.m. that a woman was in labor and could not get out of her house.

An ambulance was delayed because of the weather conditions but eventually the mother's water broke and she started to give birth. That’s when the first responders stepped in.

The baby boy named Daniel and his family are safe at home and healthy.
