HYDERABAD: Four women constables turned Good Samaritans, extending a helping hand for a woman in labour pain to deliver the baby on the pavement here on Tuesday afternoon. The four women cops from Narayanguda police station donned the hats of midwives and used a saree to create a makeshift labour room by the roadside. The woman gave birth to a baby boy and timely support ensured a safe delivery.
Narayanaguda police inspector S Bheem Reddy received a distress call on Tuesday afternoon, informing that a pregnant woman has collapsed on the road near Shanti theatre near Narayanaguda YMCA Cross roads. The woman was writhing in pain but there was no body to help her out.
The inspector immediately dispatched a team including four women constables to help the woman.
However, the police team who reached the spot was surprised to see the woman was wriggling in labour pain. Realising that she would deliver a baby anytime, the police personnel initially thought of shifting the woman to the Government Maternity Hospital in King Koti, which was approximately three kilometres away from the spot.
However, they soon realised that the woman would deliver the baby before reaching the hospital. The constables soon sourced a saree and other cloth material, tied it to an iron grill by the side of the pavement and created a makeshift labour room for the woman to deliver the baby. Soon, the woman gave birth to a baby boy. The police assisted her to ensure woman a safe delivery.
