The newborn did not cry, and his skin was pale.
Fortunately, the 119 ambulance arrived within 10 minutes of receiving the report, and first aid was provided immediately.

Paramedics communicated with professional medical staff through video calls and were instructed to cut the umbilical cord.

Firefighters Kang Min-ho, Lee Dae-han, and Yoo Jong-su, who saved the mother and baby, said they just did what they had to do and hope the baby grows up healthy.
