Apparently, the woman lives at Nsugyaso and was going to Agogo in Ashanti for the delivery.

He had no options as he came to her rescue, delivering her baby on the side of the road, using a black Polythene bag as gloves.

Social media user Edmund Atweri Duodu shared the touching story of the community nurse on Facebook:

After saving the woman, Jordan explained in an interview how it all happened.

After the safe delivery, Nurse Jordan Yunbow cut the umbilical cord with a blade, dried off the baby boy wrapped him with cloth, and handed him to his mother.

I was going to have a meeting with the chiefs and Elders so i saw a private car parked at where they sell their Patrol thinking may be they,wanted to buy patrol and go ahead.A 19 close to 20 year old girl came out and wanted to urinate not knowing the whole thing(labour) had started so i went closer and they told me she was in labour. So i have to take their mackintosh(rubber) put it on the floor and helped her deliver."
