Traffic officer delivers baby on N2

We love feel good stories like this!

According to Cape Town traffic spokesperson Richard Coleman, at about 07:00 on Friday, 10 November, Senior Traffic Officer Amanda Fojo was issuing a ticket to a taxi driver on the N2 incoming at Jakes Gerwel Drive when a motorist stopped alongside and requested an escort to Mowbray maternity hospital for a female passenger who was in labour.

"Officer Fojo assessed the situation and realised that the baby's arrival was imminent, so she put her midwifery skills to use instead and helped the lady deliver a healthy baby boy. Traffic officers then escorted mother and baby to Mowbray maternity hospital; both in good health," said Coleman.

Well done to Officer Fojo and congratulations to the new mother!

Are you going to be at Black Friday?
No it gets too crowded
Yes, but only online
Only for things I really need
Yes I’m spending all day there
Didn’t budget for it correctly
