  I trusted Poppi's dad with my kids, sister says The sister of Paul Worthington, who is said to have sexually assaulted his 13-month-old daughter Poppi before her death, has told a court she trusted him with her own children. Tracy Worthington gave evidence at the second inquest into the death of the toddler who collapsed suddenly at her home in Barrow-in-Furness on 12 December 2012.Mr Worthington has been in hiding since January 2016 when family court judge Mr Justice Peter Jackson, now Lord Justice Peter Jackson, made public his conclusion that he probably sexually assaulted his 13-month-old daughter before her collapse.

His mother had been in labor for 15 minutes, called 911 and was in the back of an ambulance from Landover Hills when he was delivered by a medic working his first night on the job. Helsel said his delivery of the baby girl must have been “fate.”

Just 17 minutes later, DeMarse was in the back of the ambulance delivering little Levi Dock, the infant son of Jeff and Emily Dock of the Middleville area. The parents gave Levi the middle name "Matthew" in honor of the paramedic who guided them through a tough situation.

Helsel was born in the back of ambulance 42 years ago. After Daniel Helsel and his colleague were dispatched to help a woman in labor at her home Monday morning, the two firefighters joked about the coincidence of the call landing on his birthday.

Wouldn't it be funny if Helsel, who was born in the back of an ambulance, wound up delivering a baby on the way to the hospital just as he had come into the world 42 years ago?

It turns out that is exactly what happened minutes after Helsel and his colleagues loaded the mother-to-be in the back of an ambulance heading to Prince George's Hospital Center.

His mother called an ambulance when she was in labor with him 42 years ago , Helsel told The Washington Post on Monday, but they weren't fast enough and he was born in the back of the vehicle, delivered by a medic working his first shift.

"As soon as she got in the ambulance, the baby's head" appeared, Helsel said Monday. "Everything was good with the delivery, albeit in the back of an ambulance."

Helsel said he was born on the side of the Beltway when his mother was on her way to Holy Cross Hospital in 1975. His mother had been in labor for 15 minutes, called 911 and was in the back of an ambulance from Landover Hills when he was delivered by a medic working his first night on the job.

Helsel said his delivery of the baby girl must have been "fate." The 17-year-veteran of the Prince George's County Fire Department said he had never worked on his birthday until Monday.

"We were just trying to get her to the hospital," Helsel said. "In the moment, you're just trying to do your job."

Britain lags behind on heart health knowledge

  Britain lags behind on heart health knowledge Nearly two thirds of Britons don't know what to do if someone's heart stops beating, according to a first aid charity. St John Ambulance also says more than half of people don't know where their nearest defibrillator is.Charity director James Radford said: "What we're trying to do is to encourage the very simple steps that everyone could take: find out where your closest defibrillator is, know how to spot the signs of a cardiac arrest, be ready to use CPR to resuscitate, so know that early defibrillation can make all the difference in the terms of survival.

About 12:17 a.m., Helsel and his colleague at the station in Largo were called to help a pregnant woman in her apartment. After they arrived, they discovered the woman's contractions were less than two minutes apart.

They brought her from her third-floor apartment and loaded her into the ambulance.

"We got in the back of the unit; I happened to be at the foot of the stretcher," Helsel said.

The baby girl quickly arrived crying and breathing, delivered at 12:38 a.m. After the infant's umbilical cord was cut, she was cleaned up and handed to her mother.

"We placed the baby on mom's chest and continued bouncing down the road to the hospital," Helsel said.

Mark Brady, a spokesman for the Prince George's Fire Department, says at least 24 babies are born in county ambulances on the way to the hospital each year.

"It used to be a big thing when it occurred, but as time goes on and the population grows, it happens more often," Brady said.

But the fact that one of the department's firefighters delivered a baby in an ambulance much as he was born 42 years ago, Brady said, is a "remarkable and amazing coincidence."

Hours after delivering the baby, Helsel said he planned to spend his birthday in the firehouse with a visit from his parents, his wife and his children.
