A police officer provided assistance to a pregnant couple who lost their way to a clinic where the woman was scheduled to give birth in the early morning hours of Friday.

According to a police announcement, around 1am on Friday, officers carrying out traffic checks on the Limassol-Nicosia motorway near GSP stadium were approached by a couple who was driving to a specific clinic to give birth.

The husband of the woman, who was already in labour, told police he did not know the route to the facility and was concerned he would not get there on time.

The officer immediately decided to escort the couple by driving his patrol car in front of the husband’s vehicle to the clinic where the woman gave birth to a healthy baby girl.

The woman’s husband thanked the officer for his prompt action and assistance, the announcement added.
