''At first, I was panicking. I have been working in midwifery for seven years, but when I encountered that case, I panicked because I didn't even have protective garments like gloves. I had to use my bare hands to collect the baby; I couldn't just watch the baby fall on the bus,'' she recalled.

Fatimata describes experience

The midwife described the experience as the most fulfilling in her seven-year career.

''It's fulfilling and joyous. Since my seven years of midwifery, today is my most fulfilling moment because I feel like I have saved a mother in her vulnerable state,'' she said.

The new mother and the baby have received medical care at a clinic, Fatimata added.

The video of the midwife's interview, posted on YouTube by JoyNews, had garnered only one comment at the time of this publication.
