A LOCALLY stranded individual (LSI) gave birth to a healthy baby girl Tuesday evening in front of World Trade Center in Pasay City.

The timely arrival of the Pasay City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (DRRMO) saved the baby from serious danger after one of the team members managed to cut the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck.

The DRRMO rushed the baby and her 28-year-old mother Julie Bayda to the Pasay City General Hospital and they are now both in good health.

Pasay Public Information Office (PIO) head Mr. Jhun Burgos said the DRRMO received a call from the city’s traffic base past 6 p.m. about a pregnant woman giving birth at the corner of Macapagal Blvd. and Buendia Avenue, in front of World Trade Center.

The team arrived at the place at around 6:23 p.m. as the baby came out of her mother’s womb.

Burgos said the woman and her husband, both natives of Iligan City, had been staying in front of the World Trade Center for quite sometimes after they failed to return to their province.

Mayor Emi-Calixto Rubiano, after learning of the incident, immediately ordered the City Social Welfare Office to provide necessary assistance to the mother and daughter.
