Stephanie Duffey gave birth at her home in August 2012, and because of complications from labor had to call 911 for help. Firefighters with the West Mecklenburg Volunteer Fire Department, Paramedic Crew Chief Tory Stokes and EMT-Basic Angela Breeden-Alvarez responded.
While her son Pierson was born healthy and was not in danger, Mrs. Duffey suffered significant blood loss and was drifting in and out of consciousness. The Medic crew and first responders transported her from the top floor of her home to a waiting Medic unit. Mrs. Duffey and her newborn son were transported without further complications and have since made a full recovery.
Stephanie came to Medic headquarters in early January 2013 so that four and a half month old Pierson could meet everyone involved. She reports that she was thrilled she got the chance to say thank you and meet everyone involved in helping her when she needed it most.Back to Survivor Stories
