Holyoke firefighters reunite with baby they delivered


There was a special reunion on Sunday at Fire Station No. 6.

There were hugs all around as three firefighters caught up with Henry Stewart and his parents.

Lt. Spike Ostiguy and firefighters John Scalia and Jason Santanello were called on May 3, 2012, as Henry's mom, Amy Owsiak, surprisingly wound up in labor.

Within nine minutes, Henry was born.

Sunday, the group gathered to reminisce and celebrate Henry's upcoming first birthday.

"When they came, they looked like we were having their child," said Owsiak, remembering the day she gave birth. "They looked so excited, you would have thought they were the dads. All three of them were very happy."

"You try to leave a lot of the stuff we deal with on a daily basis or a weekly basis at work," said Ostiguy. "You do not take that home. But it is stories like this you do not mind going home and talking to your wife and children about."

Henry was born two months premature, but his parents say he's doing fine now.

He is healthy and just over the 50th percentile for size.
