Cancun, Q.R. — A woman who was in a public combi on her way to Cancun ended up giving birth along the side of the federal highway with the help of a police officer.
The incident happened Friday when the women had taken public transportation from Puerto Morelos to Cancun. Along the way, she began to have labor pains. She got out of the combi at the Cancun police filter where she was able to get help in her delivery.
Although an ambulance was called, 24-year-old Leticia P.A. could not wait and ended up giving birth along the side of the highway with the help of a police officer.
Federal police officer Iván Guzmán García took on the role of midwife, helping the woman to successfully have her baby, her third, alongside the road. An ambulance did arrive shortly afterward, taking her and her newborn to the General Hospital of Cancun.
