Halala: Police officer helps deliver healthy baby after mom went into labour
Previously Briefly News wrote about Lieutenant Colonel Mandie Davel who was a true heroine, after she did not hesitate to help a distressed woman who called on the Springs SAPS for assistance.
She was experiencing severe labour pains on Friday night (3 December 2021) and Mandie immediately called for an ambulance.
However, Mandie could see from the woman's condition that they did not have time to wait for an ambulance.
Mandie was assisted by Sergeant Mofokeng to help deliver the baby without any complications. As soon as they were able to move, both mother and baby were transported to the hospital.
