EMERGENCY: Neighbours called officials after hearing the woman calling for help

A WOMAN has given birth in the middle of a Madrid street while temperatures reached almost 30 degrees.

Two Policia Nacional officers assisted the 34-year-old who had already gone into labour on Saturday afternoon on a street in the Ciudad Lineal district.

Neighbours called the emergency services after hearing the mother screaming for help.

The emergency services arrived to find her holding her newborn daughter, who was unresponsive, with the umbilical cord still attached.

Paramedics managed to stabilise the mother and baby in the street, before they were sent to the Gregorio Maranon Hospital in Madrid.
