The lady had been at the police station with her husband when she went into labour. According to Arrive Alive's website, officers at the station took the woman to the trauma centre and immediately called for an ambulance.

However, before the ambulance could arrive, the cops helped the woman give birth to healthy little girl. Help arrived soon afterwards and both mother and newborn were transported to a hospital.
