Woman gives birth to baby in Place de la Concorde

As is so often the case, traffic was backed up on the Place de la Concorde in the French capital. When two police officers noticed a frantically honking man, the birth was already in full swing.

In the middle of a huge traffic jam on Paris’ Place de la Concorde, a woman gave birth to a baby girl, assisted by her husband and two traffic cops.

Officers Julie and Olivier were standing at a traffic light on their way back to the station when they noticed a man honking his horn, Le Parisien newspaper reported on Tuesday. When they checked in, the birth was already underway. Together with colleagues from civil protection, who happened to be stuck in the traffic chaos a few meters away, they provided first aid and guided an ambulance to the scene using their cell phones.

“In my 20-year career, this has never happened to me,” Olivier told the newspaper. “We’re trained for it, but you don’t think that’s going to happen one day,” said his colleague Julie. The Place de la Concorde is the largest square in the center of the French capital. dpa
