Police constables helped a 38-year-old woman deliver a baby on the footpath in Hyderabad.
Around noon on April 19, the police got a distress call claiming that a woman appeared to be in labour on a footpath. Inspector Bheem Reddy then dispatched a team of woman constables.
When the team reached the spot, they saw woman can’t be shifted to the hospital at that moment and made a make-shift ‘labour ward’.
The women constables– Sharadha, Shoba, Jyothi and Divya–acted as midwives and other policemen guarded the area to protect the privacy of the woman.
“The identity of the woman is not known but it’s likely that she was a homeless person from the area. When we got the call we rushed to the spot and found her all alone,” Mr Reddy said.

And then, the constables announced the news! It was a baby boy.
The mother and baby were cleaned and then rushed in an ambulance to the hospital. The baby boy, who weighed 3 kg at birth, is also reported to be healthy.
