A pregnant woman made it to hospital just in time to give birth after she was escorted by police officers.

The police said that this morning at about 6.30am, an officer who was on his way to start a day of work encountered an unusual situation while he was stuck in traffic in Triq Frangisku Pisani, Mosta.

The officer was approached by a driver who said that a woman he was driving to hospital needed urgent assistance as she was in labour.


After the officer called for backup, thanks to the cooperation of the drivers present, he managed to escort the couple with his personal motorcycle until they met the Traffic Police who took over all the way to the hospital.

Thumbs up to our boy in blue and congratulations to the couple, the police said.
