As reported by Emergencias Madrid, a pregnant woman gave birth to her baby in the middle of a street in Madrid this Tuesday, May 30.

In a post on Twitter, accompanied by a video of the happy mother and her child, they wrote: ” A new woman from Madrid was born today on the street, at #Villaverde”.

“The mother was going to take a taxi but she didn’t have time. @SAMUR_PC has cut the cord and verified that mother and daughter were fine. They have been transferred to the maternity hospital on October 12. !! Congratulations!!” , it continued.

The unexpected birth occurred at No85 on Calle Villajoyosa in the Villaverde district of Spain’s capital city with the assistance of a nurse who, by chance, happened to be in the vicinity.

As the 28-year-old was out and about in the city, her waters broke and contractions quickly followed. The nurse rushed to her assistance from her realizing that she was going to start giving birth at any moment.

In a follow-up tweet, Emergencias Madrid wrote: ” It happened in Villajoyosa street and the #parto has been very fast. When @SAMUR_PC arrived, the baby had already been born with the help of a nurse who helped the mother on the street After cutting the cord they examined both of them and they were in perfect condition.”

A member of the public alerted the Samur-Civil Protection health services who promptly deployed an ambulance to the location. The medical team cut the woman’s umbilical cord and she was transferred, along with her newborn baby girl, to the city’s 12 de Octubre Maternity Hospital.
