The woman was in the passenger seat. I could see the head was crowning. It happened really quickly. I have no first aid experience whatsoever but I think instincts just kicked in”“Wayne Mullally, who works in the warehouse,  helped with the birth. He’s only 27 and was absolutely fantastic. We’re both still in shock today,” said the mother of one from Garryowen.But their reaction was overshadowed by the relief of the mother whose child they helped deliver.The Russian native, who has two other children, was travelling from Tipperary with her elderly uncle to meet an ambulance at East Link Business park but turned into Delta instead.The ambulance arrived shortly after the baby was born and took the mother and child to the Limerick Maternity Hospital. They also asked Sharon and Wayne if they need to be treated for shock at the scene but they declined.Sharon went to visit the mother and her healthy baby boy last Saturday. “We were both so emotional. I didn’t even get her name but she promised to come back and visit us in a few weeks,’ she said.
