Two traffic police officers in Ho Chi Minh City successfully escorted a woman in labor from neighboring Dong Nai Province to a hospital on Friday morning. 

 

31-year-old Le Minh Thanh from Dong Nai told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper that he was driving his sister to a maternity hospital since she was about to go into labor on Friday morning.

 

When the car was crossing the Thu Thiem Tunnel connecting Thu Duc City with District 1 in Ho Chi Minh City, the woman already gave birth to her child.

 

“At that time, I didn’t know how to make it through the crowded street,” Thanh recalled.

 

“My sister was screaming, and the baby was crying all the time, so that I was so panicked.”

 

Thanh drove towards the Nguyen Tri Phuong overpass where he saw two traffic police officers on duty.

 

He stopped to explain the situation and asked to be escorted to the University Medical Center on Hong Bang Street in District 5.

 

The two policemen immediately took the lead and guided Thanh’s car to the hospital.

 

Thanh’s car camera recorded the escort. The vehicle camera footage was later viral on social media and showered with compliments.

 

According to Thanh, both the mother and the newborn are healthy.

 

“It was such a relief that thanks to the traffic police officers, we could make it to the hospital before it became dangerous for the mother and the baby,” Thanh said.

 

“I wanted to shake their hands to express my gratitude but they urged “Care for your sister first”,” he added.

 

In the same evening, District 5 police unit confirmed the two officers who had successfully cleared the way for Thanh’s car were captains Nguyen Trung Hieu and Do Huynh Trung Quan of the district’s traffic police and public order squad.

 

“In that situation, I could only think of the fastest way to help the woman and the baby go to the hospital so that the doctors and medical staff could handle the emergency as it could be dangerous to their lives,” captain Hieu told Tuoi Tre.

 

“It’s our duty. Whoever in such an emergency will act the same,” Hieu said.

 

Thanh also came to the District 5 police station to thank the two captains later on the same day.
