A patrol police team transported a woman suffering from heavy bleeding after giving birth to the hospital in time for treatment in Chau Thanh District, Kien Giang Province in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta region on Tuesday.

The task force saw Nguyen Thu Thuy’s family members carrying her and a baby on a motorbike in Minh Luong Town of Chau Thanh District at around 6:15 am on Tuesday.

The officers promptly transferred the woman, who was bleeding profusely, and the baby into a police car to head for the hospital.

Thuy had shown signs of approaching labor earlier.

However, before she could go to the hospital, she went into labor and gave birth at home. 

After giving birth, the woman was bleeding in large amounts. 

Due to the emergency situation, the family members resorted to the motorbike to take her to the hospital.

“Had it not been for the police using the car with a priority siren, I’m not sure whether or not we could save her as it took more than ten kilometers from our house to the hospital,” said a family member of Thuy.

Thuy’s baby weighed more than three kilograms at birth.

Both the mother and baby are healthy and staying in the care of Chau Thanh District General Hospital.

“Before my family members could thank them, the policemen got in their car and left,” Thuy told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper over the phone.

 “When I’m discharged, I’ll take my baby to them to express my huge gratitude.”
