An Indian woman went into a sudden labour pain and gave birth to a baby at the airport here after a female inspector came to her rescue, a media report said on Saturday.
The unidentified woman was at Terminal 2 of the Dubai International airport when she went into throes of labour, the Khaleej Time reported without mentioning the date of the incident.
Corporal Hanan Hussein Mohammed, an inspector at Dubai airport, appeared as a saviour for the woman who swiftly swung into action and rushed the pregnant woman to the airport's inspection room, the report said.
She helped the woman not only to give birth to the baby but also performed cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on the new-born who was not breathing.
Hanan called the ambulance and the mother and her baby were taken to city-based Latifa hospital.
Hannan was later honoured by Brigadier Ali Atiq Bin Lahej, director of the General Department of Airport Security at Dubai Police, for her noble act, the report said.
