A group of Metro cops in Joburg went beyond the call of duty when they helped a homeless woman give birth on Christmas Day.
The four law enforcement officers discovered the woman giving birth on the pavement. It was too late to call an ambulance, so they delivered the baby themselves.
According to the Daily Sun, the police officers were stopped by a group of homeless people who alerted them about a woman giving birth at the corner of Rissik and De Villiers streets in the CBD.
The officers, Sibusiso Lembede, Sibongiseni Dlame, Mduzuzi Ncongwane and Sydney Betha rushed to help. It was too late to wait for medical assistance so they delivered the baby right there on the pavement.
An ambulance was called after the baby was safely delivered. Both the mum and the baby were transported to the Charlotte Maxeke Hospital.
