"Well, I looked up and I seen a man all erratic," said Jessica Barber, an employee at a business near the fire station. "He came in and he was like mumbling and trying to get something out and he wasn't making any sense, like I couldn't understand him. I told him to slow down and take a deep breath. He got out "baby, cardboard box, new baby."
