Yocheved's twins couldn't wait until the ambulance arrived
at the hospital, so a Magen David Adorn paramedic and two
16-year-old volunteers delivered the babies en route. The
10,000 maternity cases MDA handles annually aren't always so
dramatic, but more than 100 of these babies had to be delivered
before they reached the hospital. Every one of them is a gift.
