Due to heavy traffic around APEC summit venues, a woman in labour failed to reach the hospital and was forced to deliver her baby on the sidewalk of Belle Avenue corner Macapagal Boulevard in Parañaque.

The incident reportedly happened on Monday at about 11.30am when a couple riding a motorcycle asked for help, luckily there’s traffic enforcers and other security personnel around the area who went to help the woman deliver her child.

A staff of San Juan de Dios Hospital where the baby and her mother were admitted, says the woman did not want to be interviewed.

Said Cely Gonzales: “The mother and baby boy are doing well and are about to be discharged.”
