Police forced to deliver eager baby on the way to hospital
"ANYWHERE, Anytime" took on a whole new meaning for two constables and a baby eager and ready to greet the world.
As an expectant mum was being rushed to hospital it became apparent that a spirited little girl had other ideas.
Two female constables, under expert guidance over the telephone from the Queensland Ambulance Service, delivered the baby in the front seat of mum's car at the Indooroopilly Police Station around 5.30am this morning.
Three male officers assisted with blankets and screening, while an anxious father kept vigil in the car park.
Mum and baby were transported to the Mater Mother's Hospital in good spirits.
Superintendent Brian Connors, Patrol Services, North Brisbane District commended both officers saying that they did an excellent job in challenging circumstances.
"Policing is often about rising to the challenge in unexpected situations. In our job you never know what will happen next.
The two constables involved in delivering this little girl did an exceptional job," he said.
