Police deliver baby on motorway hard shoulder
By:

GUARDIA Civil officers delivered a baby on the motorway in the middle of the night near Madrid, say emergency services in the capital.

The mother and her husband were on their way to hospital in the early hours when they came across a patrol car on the A-1 and asked for help, since it appeared the baby may be about to make an appearance before they reached their destination.

The two officers escorted the car and called an ambulance just in case – but less than two kilometres later, they had to stop as the baby was already coming.

As a result, the police officers had to deliver the baby – although they kept in constant contact with paramedics who were on their way to ensure they were doing everything they should.

Once the ambulance arrived, staff checked the mother and her new daughter – who weighed three kilos (6lb 8oz) – and confirmed they were both in good health.

The family was taken to the San José Quirónsalud hospital in Madrid.

Mother and daughter are said to be doing very well.
