Thrissur (Kerala) [India], May 31 (HBTV): A 37-year-old woman from Malappuram district gave birth to a baby girl on a KSRTC bus in Thrissur, Kerala.   

The incident took place on Wednesday when the woman, travelling with her husband from Thrissur to Thottilpalam in Kozhikode, began experiencing severe labor pains as the bus crossed Peramangalam village.   

In response to the situation, the bus driver promptly altered the route and headed directly to Amala Hospital in Thrissur, notifying the hospital about the emergency. Upon reaching the hospital, the woman was already in an advanced stage of labor. 

Visuals shared on social media show the bus stopped at the hospital with staff members rushing to assist the mother and her newborn inside the vehicle. The medical team brought essential equipment onto the bus to ensure a safe delivery.   

Dr. Yasir Sulaiman of Amala Hospital stated, "The initiation of labor pain had already begun. At that point, it was impossible for us to shift her to the emergency department. We had to take out the child and cut the umbilical cord there itself. We ensured that the baby and the mother were safe. Currently, both are doing well. It was a different day and a new thing for us."
