Six Brave Cops in Shimla Carried a Woman in Labour for 10km to Get Her to the Hospital on Time!

Six Brave Cops in Shimla Carried a Woman in Labour for 10km to Get Her to the Hospital on Time!

Six Himachal Predesh policemen helped a woman deliver her baby safely by carrying her through the snow for 10km to get her to the hospital where she could get medical attention

Even as the harsh effects of severe winter continue to hit Shimla, cops in the region warmed the hearts of Indians everywhere when they braved the snow to help a pregnant woman deliver her baby safely despite hazardous conditions.

A 23-year-old woman from the Bhont village in Shimla started experiencing labour pain on January 9. But there was no way for her to reach a hospital because the region was covered in snow. Since all roads were blocked, she was even denied an ambulance. Desperate for any help, she and her mother called up 108 — the emergency number.

That’s when the cops decided to help her no matter what. In an incredible display of humanity, six policemen from Himachal Pradesh came to her house to aid her in reaching the hospital. They personally carried her in a cot for 10 km just so she could get the medical attention she deserved.

These men had to wade through a thick layer of snow while ensuring that Kamini was bundled up and safe throughout the journey.

This is a story that ends well for everyone as Kamini not only reached Kamla Nehru Hospital on time but she also gave birth to a healthy baby girl.

This incident comes in midst of reports that everyday life has been severely disrupted for the residents of Shimla who have had to deal with power-cuts, water and food shortage in near freezing temperatures this winter. But stories like these prove that there will always be those brave souls who will put their lives at risk to help others in need.
