Thai traffic police trained to deliver babies

Traffic in Bangkok is so extreme that many women in labour don't make it to the hospital and end up having their babies on the road. It is estimated that in 15 years the Thai traffic police have delivered around 100 babies!

To help in such situations, a special division of the traffic police is constantly trained in how to deliver a baby in an emergency.
