THERE WAS SOME happy news today involving the Dublin Fire Brigade after a baby born almost three months prematurely was revived by officers.

The baby in question was born at just 27 weeks last Tuesday evening, and when fire officers attended the scene at Northwood, Santry, he was unresponsive.

The attending crew from Finglas fire station managed to resuscitate the baby boy en route to hospital and he now reportedly is “doing very well”.

The baby has been named Seán Robert for officers Seán Peters and Robert Ryan who attended him following his premature arrival.

“The baby boy was very premature, born unresponsive and not breathing and without a pulse,” a DFB spokesperson told

However the crew managed to revive him, which is a very happy result. The first 48 hours in such situations are critical but by all accounts the baby is doing very well.

In the aftermath the little boy  was even presented with his own honorary paramedic badge.

Well done those men.
