Work at the Basak Police Station in Mandaue City was proceeding normally up until a cab pulled up in front of the facility at around 11 am. A pregnant woman and her brother were inside, getting ready to give birth. She would not be able to cross the Mactan Canal in Lapu-Lapu City to get to Ouano Hospital, the taxi driver was concerned. He believes that a patrol car with a siren will be more maneuverable around other vehicles.
The station chief, Senior Inspector Rodgene Fudotan, was alerted to the situation and quickly gave the order to transport the woman to the hospital, even though it was outside of their area of responsibility. Elmor Ceniza, the driver, accelerated the station police car number “329” toward the Marcelo B. Fernan Bridge while Gonzales and Josie Tejano, the non-uniformed employees, attended to the public. Women are obviously giving birth
The woman is in her last moments of childbirth as soon as they reach the water. The mother began to protest that the baby was erupting, that the head was protruding, and that she should push.
She was fortunate that Tejano was a licensed nurse since he was able to help her while she was pregnant and until she gave birth to her daughter. For the mother and her new daughter, Tejano and Ceniza’s assistance in assisting the woman to give birth was like an early Christmas present.
“I find it difficult to describe the emotions I get when a newborn leaves my mother’s lap, especially when the infant begins to wail. Being able to assist in that way makes me glad and feel good, especially considering how important they see it to be. Tejano remarked, “We are the fortunate ones. Station Chief Fudotan is appreciative of the public’s trust in the police, particularly the taxi driver who brought the woman to their attention.
He said what happened last Monday morning also shows that the police are not only interested in peace and order. They are also here to serve the public in any way they can. As for the mother and daughter, they were handed over to the staff of Ouano Hospital around midday. Fortunately, both mother and child are safe and in stable condition.
