First responders who helped to deliver a mother's twin babies last weekend got to meet again Thursday in a heart-warming reunion.  

It all started last Sunday when a D.C. mom was unable to get to the hospital after she went into labor.  

First responders from DC Fire and EMS Engine no. 13 responded to the 911 call and immediately sprang into action upon arriving to the residence.  

"Five minutes after we got inside, the first baby came; everything was good, we wrapped him up, cut the cord," Captain Daniel Troxell said.

After delivering the first baby, the father said to Capt Troxell, "what about the other one?" 

Troxell asks the father, "What other one?" The father responds, "They're twins!!" 

Mom applauded Capt. Troxell's quick thinking, saying he didn't hesitate at all and did a really good job and kept her calm.  

"It was like, the best miracle I'd ever had," the mother said.  

Both babies were reportedly breached, meaning they came out feet first, which required some skill from Capt. Troxell.
