Managers of Mai Linh Transportation Company in Ha Tinh Province yesterday praised driver Nguyen Dang Ngu for helping mother-to-be to deliver the baby safely.

Driver Ngu picked the pregnant and her relative up at their home in Cam Lac commune and took them on the short drive to the local infirmary.

However, by the time they got there, the driver realized the pregnant woman would be able to give birth soon; so he and her relative have helped her deliver the baby in the backseat of a taxi on its way.

The baby boy was born weighing a healthy 3.5 kilogram.

The driver was quick to continue the journey to the hospital

Thanks to the taxi driver, the new-born baby and the woman were both treated in time and ended up in a stable condition.

Driver Ngu said this is the first time he has helped a mother-to-be to give birth.
