A woman on Wednesday delivered a baby boy on a platform of Thane railway station.
Twenty-four-year old Meenakshi Jadhav along with her husband Sandesh Jadhav had reached Thane railway station’s platform number 10 to catch a local train to Ghatkopar to visit a hospital. But before they could board the train, Meenakshi started experiencing severe labour pain.
As her husband cried for help, Railway Protection Force ( RPF) officer Shobha Mothe and other women reached for help and provided Meenakshi a dignified cover. After few minutes, she gave birth to a baby boy.
Mother and newborn are being treated in Civil Hospital and are reportedly safe.
