Doctors always try their best to give an accurate window of time for childbirth, so that pregnant women can be admitted into the hospital to be cared for. However, you can never precisely predict a medical emergency, and that is exactly what happened at the Mathura Cantonment Railway Station, reports TOI.
On September 14, 2018, policeman Sonu Kumar Rajora was at the railway station and saw some commotion there. Upon enquiring, the cop found out that there was a woman who was undergoing labour pain in the station premises.
The woman according to The Times of India, is Bhavna, a resident of Ballabhgarh, and was travelling by train from Hathras to Faridabad with her husband, Mahesh. After she started having contractions, the duo decided to step off from the train at the Mathura Cantonment Railway Station.
The couple requested several people to help them out but were turned down. It was then that Rajora approached them.

Dropping everything he had, including a court appointment, Rajora, a GRP station house officer in the Hathras district, tried to arrange an ambulance, but when it did not show up, he took Bhavna to the nearest medical facility in an e-rickshaw.
The trio reached the medical facility, but there was another obstacle to come. There was no stretcher, and the woman had to be admitted immediately. The TOI report states that the medical facility directed Bhavna and Mahesh to the women’s facility, which was located 100 metres away. Taking note of her worsening condition, Rajora wasted no time in carrying the lady in his arms to the said facility.
Speaking to ANI, Rajora said, “I saw the woman was in pain and her husband was asking people for help. I called for the ambulance, but it wasn’t available. So I took her to the hospital where she gave birth to a baby.”
Well, Bhavna delivered a boy in the hospital, and she and Mahesh could not stop thanking Rajora, for his timely help.
