The SAPS members in Roedtan outside Modimolle, Sergeant Mogoru and Constable Mnisi have successfully managed to assist a woman to deliver the new born baby girl on Sunday 30 May 2021 at the police station.
The young mother came to the Community Service Center (CSC) complaining about labour pains at about 13:30. Constable Mnisi was on duty and she managed to contact Sergeant Mogoru who was on patrol duties and she quickly rushed back to the station.
The duo collaborated to assist the woman in giving birth in the boardroom of the station. The members at the same time summoned an ambulance which immediately came and transported the new born baby and her mother to the hospital.
Sergeant Mogoru indicated that she understands the risks involved in all these incidents but that they are often faced with situations where they have to perform duties beyond the normal SAPS mandate in order to save lives. During all these incidents, she used her own emergency kit and resources.
