Some call it controversial, others call it a life saver. In time for the onset of a second wave of the coronavirus, an all-women’s EMS service in Brooklyn is finally getting an ambulance after overcoming naysayers in the city who tried to prevent it from happening. As CBS2’s Lisa Rozner reported, 4-month-old Sarah Richter sleeps peacefully, even in the pouring rain. “She’s a miracle. They are a miracle,” her mother, Chani Richter, told Rozner. Richter was talking about the organization Ezras Nashim, which helped deliver her baby at home. “She came too fast, I had no labor, so I called Ezras Nashim, because they were on my speed dial,” she said. “In two minutes flat, they turned my bathroom into a hospital room.” Then, 911 had to be called to take the mother and baby to a hospital, and multiple first responders arrived. Richter only wishes then that the group had the $100,000 ambulance that just arrived. Donations helped purchase the ambulance and a $50,000 stretcher.
