During the height of Thursday's raging snowstorm, Wellesley police simultaneously helped deliver a baby and saved a man who had a heart attack while driving on Route 9, according to authorities.
Paramedics rushed through the snowstorm to help him, giving him CPR and ultimately reviving him in the ambulance to the hospital, Pilecki said.
"The last we heard he was alive, and has no serious injuries," Pilecki said.
At the same time, officers also received a call from a panicked man who was trying to drive his pregnant wife to Newton-Wellesley Hospital because she was in labor, but was stuck in standstill traffic because of the snow, Pilecki said.
"At one point, everything was pretty much at a standstill given the rate of how fast the snow was coming down," he said. "This man couldn't go anywhere, but he was right by Papa Razzi, so we had him into the parking lot and then sent some officers over there."
Pilecki said the station had to call Newton for paramedics, since "ours were tied up with the gentleman having the heart attack," he said.
The woman gave birth in the ambulance to a baby boy, Pilecki said.
