Lagos: Woman Gives Birth At Bus Stop


MEN of the Lagos State Emergency Management Authority (LASEMA) were on Monda 19 February 2024 called in to assist a heavily pregnant woman in the safe birth of a baby boy after she unexpectedly went into labour while waiting to board a bus in Onipanu in Somolu Local Government Area.

According to reports, the event occurred at 9.30 a.m., while locals were on their way to work.

According to an eyewitness, the unidentified woman was heavily pregnant when she went into labour at Onipanu Bus Stop, dropping to the ground before others came to her aid.

A call was soon placed to the emergency toll-free line, 767, and LASEMA paramedics from the Lagos Response Team (LRT) arrived for the rescue operation.

“The LRT and the agency’s paramedics moved in swiftly in collaboration with some market women at the bus stop, providing a temporary makeshift in ensuring the safe delivery of the baby and the well-being of the mother,” an eyewitness, simply identified as Fredrick, told Vanguard.

Fortunately, the woman successfully delivered a baby boy amidst jubilation for the safe delivery.

Permanent Secretary, LASEMA, Dr Femi Oke-Osanyitolu, who confirmed the event, commended the gallant effort of the officers who promptly ensured medical assistance.

The agency officials after stabilizing the mother and newborn infant were quickly transported to the nearest hospital for further medical care and attention,” Oke-Osanyintolu stated.
