A woman shocked shoppers when she gave birth to a baby girl on a pavement outside a Primark clothing store yesterday.
A passer-by in his statement said that the lady was all by herself and there was no medics there. As people walked by and saw ambulances and medics gathering on the side of the street, they also stood there and saw the woman, who was all covered from towels by assistant medics all around her supporting her to give birth to her child.
The Primark clothing staff when saw the medics gathering on the street for the woman, they bought clean towels and sheets to help the lady. Fortunately, it was lunch time and people were heading off towards eating zone, and among them one was an off-duty doctor, who stepped in to help the lady and the ambulance staff.
The public gathered there cheered out loud when they heard the baby crying. And finally she was born and lying down on her mother’s chest.
“The roar from all the people standing there was amazing when they heard the baby cry for the first time.”, said a witness.
The lady and her baby has been moved to Birmingham City Hospital and they both are doing fine.
