Hervina Sianipar gave birth to a baby boy on board a Transjakarta bus on Saturday at around 2 p.m.
PT Transjakarta operational director Daud Joseph said Hervina gave birth to her third child while heading to the Harapan Indah Transjakarta bus stop in Bekasi, West Java, from Cakung, East Jakarta.
“She gave birth when the bus was in Cakung. She was assisted by a bus attendant,” Daud said on Saturday, kompas.com reported.
He said the bus had to stop while Hervina was in labor, but other passengers did not mind.
Soon after the baby was delivered, he explained, the bus attendant immediately looked for a midwife to cut the baby's umbilical cord, then Hervina was rushed to a nearby clinic in a Transjakarta car.
“The mother and the baby are safe and healthy. They are currently in a nearby clinic for further treatment, accompanied by a member of the Transjakarta operational staff.
“This is a unique experience,” Daud said. (ami)
