Montreal, May 8 (IANS) Two Canadian cops on patrol helped a woman deliver a baby on roadside here Wednesday. The 35-year-old woman, who was traveling in a car with her husband, suddenly went into deep labour pain early Wednesday morning. Left with no option, the husband stopped a police patrol vehicle and sought help from the two police officers in delivering the baby.

With little time left for her to take to hospital, the cops called the ambulance. But the woman had already gone into advanced labour.

Losing no time, the cops climbed into the car and helped the woman deliver a baby girl before the ambulance could arrive.

The mother and daughter were later shifted to hospital. As part of their first-aid training, Canadian cops are taught to handle such emergencies.
