Personnel of Kauswagan Municipal Police Station in Kauswagan, Lanao del Norte successfully assisted on a pregnant woman who gave birth inside a public comfort room located beside the police station shortly before noon today, September 11, 2021.
Reports state that the woman who was accompanied by her mother was on her way to the Rural Health Unit when she decided to stop by the public restroom to pee. However, when she got inside, she suddenly felt she was about to give birth so her mother hurried to the police station beside it to ask for assistance.
Without any delay, police rushed to the woman’s aid and PCpl Arturo M. Quitoras and Pat Clare G. Aboc safely caught the baby before she dropped to the ground. They then rushed to call the on-duty nurses at the RHU and assisted in cutting the baby’s umbilical cord while the baby started to cry loudly.
After the delivery, the mother and her newborn child were referred to the Rural Health Unit at Purok 1, Barangay Poblacion for further medical assistance.
