Woman gives birth aboard tricycle

The woman’s water broke in the tricycle
A woman gave birth to a baby boy at 1p.m. in Aba, Abia State, on Wednesday aboard a tricycle conveying her to the hospital.

A witness, Chika Onyedikachi, said the woman had gone into labour at home and thereafter boarded a tricycle to convey her to the hospital.

Ms. Onyedikachi, a nurse, said that ”the woman’s water broke on the way to the hospital”.

She said that when the vehicle got to Tonimas Junction, Aba, the baby’s head began to emerge because the trip to the hospital was halted.

Ms. Onyedikachi said that she assisted the woman in the delivery of the baby because she happened to be passing by where the incident took place.

Another witness, Marizu John, said that it was an exciting afternoon for everyone as a similar occurrence took place at the same spot in 2013.

Mr. John said, “last year a mad woman gave birth to a set of twins in this very place, so I have the feeling that this place is special.”

Violet Onwutuebe, also a witness, said this was the first time she had witnessed such an incident. She wished both mother and child good health.

The tricycle operator proved abortive as he ran away when the baby’s head started emerging.

Meanwhile, Ms. Onyedikachi said that both mother and child had been taken home and were in good condition.
