Panaji: A stitch in time saves nine. That’s exactly why Paramedic EMT Vithal is received all praises, because of his quick response after he delivered a baby in the ambulance.
Netravali Amby received call for labour pain case at around 9.40 am. Since the route was muddy inside a mining area almost 23 kilometres at Konir Pirla in Quepem Taluka, ambulance staff reached on scene at around 10 am.
The woman was in stress due labor pains from early morning and by the time ambulance staff entered the hut and saw there was PV dilated, bleeding.
Ambulance staff immediately shifted her in Ambulance and left the scene at 10:20 am and hospital was 13 km away.
While the ambulance was heading towards hospital the woman’s pain increased and ambulance staff could see the crowning. Paramedic EMT Vithal did the delivery in the ambulance. Both the male infant and mother admitted the PHC Balli and both are safe.
