A yet-to-be identified pregnant woman who was struggling to drive herself to hospital amid agony of labour pains was reportedly rescued by the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Lagos on Saturday.

This was contained in a statement released by the FRSC spokesman, Bisi Kazeem on Sunday.

Kazeem said the incident occurred in Lagos.

He said that a patrol team belonging to the Airport Unit Command of the Corps at about 2.34 pm sighted the pregnant woman.

“She was struggling to drive amidst painful labour and was rushed to a nearby hospital in Ajao Estate where she was delivered of a baby girl barely three hours later,’’ he said.

According to Kazeem, the gesture was part of the Corps statutory responsibility of saving lives through prompt rescue 1services on the roads.

Kazeem said that the FRSC Corps Marshal, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, expressed deep appreciation to the patrol team for the prompt intervention and rescue services.

He said Oyeyemi further applauded them for such act of compassion and sacrifice which was a positive representation of the true mission of the Corps.

He noted that this was one among many of such interventions that the operatives of the Corps carry out from time to time as they embark on patrol.
