A firefighter who was nine months pregnant and involved in a car accident was hailed as a “real civil servant” after stepping aside and stepping in to help others in the accident.

Megan Warfield, a firefighter in the US state of Maryland, was only a week away from her due date when she was involved in a car accident.

The mom-to-be managed to get out of her damaged car and went straight to another driver who was trapped in a second vehicle that overturned.

She began providing first aid to the person and stayed with them until the emergency teams arrived to free the victim.

Sky News partner NBC 15 news said Ms. Warfield was screened for injuries and exonerated by a trauma team – and less than 24 hours later, she gave birth to a baby girl.

Bowley Quarters volunteer firefighters, of which Ms. Warfield is a member, hailed her as “a true civil servant.”

“Since no good deed should go unnoticed, we wanted to highlight Megan’s heroic and selfless deeds,” the department wrote in a Facebook post.

He continued: “Megan had just finished organizing and hosting her late father’s second annual commemorative golf tournament when she was involved in a significant motor vehicle collision.

“Ignoring any possibility that she could be injured, Megan immediately got out of her mutilated vehicle and started providing assistance to a person trapped by their overturned car.”

“Less than 24 hours later, Megan gave birth to her beautiful baby girl.”

And in a comment to the post, Ms. Warfield’s boyfriend Joshua Daugherty said that both mom and baby were healthy and happy.

“Thanks everyone for the support. Little CJ is doing great! Megan is resting and can’t wait to get back on the court doing what she loves!” she wrote.
