Hero of the Week: Megan Warfield

Throughout the week, our ACC Team searches through emails and news articles looking for someone who deserves to be the Hero of the Week… Find out how you can nominate a Hero of the Week at the bottom of the page.

Megan Warfield from Maryland was driving home when she was involved in a multi-car collision. At the time, the 30-year-old firefighter was nine months pregnant. Despite that, Megan jumped into action, running to aid the woman in the flipped vehicle in front of her. She immediately held onto the woman’s hand to help keep her calm, telling her to be still since she was unsure of her injuries. Meanwhile, Megan was dealing with cramping of her own and was concerned for her unborn baby.

When paramedics arrived, they helped the woman in the flipped vehicle while another ambulance took Megan to the nearest hospital to make sure she and her baby were okay. Well, it turns out that the accident had induced labor! Less than 24 hours later, Megan gave birth to a healthy baby girl named Charlotte.

Megan says she’s not sure how she did what she did, running to the aide of that woman, but she was pretty sure she was running on adrenaline. And, in another turn of events, Megan’s boyfriend was the first paramedic to arrive on the scene!
