Baby arrives with some expert phone advice! 

Telephone assistance from emergency medics in the Canaries has once again helped a person in need.

This time, it was a pregnant woman who gave birth at home, with the infant being delivered by her husband, thanks to instructions over the phone.

The 26-year-old woman’s family decided to call 112 when she went into labour and the baby’s birth was imminent, allowing no time to get to hospital.

A doctor gave the husband instructions over the phone whilst an ambulance and crews rushed to their home in Santa Cruz de La Palma.

On their arrival, the baby had already been born and both were found to be doing well.
