Nigerians Applaud Emergency Tricycle Doctor
SAN FRANCISCO, January 03, (THEWILL) – Nigerians have continued to applaud the medical doctor who turned a tricycle to an emergency maternity ward in Enugu and successfully helped deliver a new-born baby on New Year's Day.
Mr. Fred Eteke, husband of the medical doctor, took to Facebook to break the news in a post that now has 218 comments, 270 likes and 627 shares,
He wrote, “Happening now…. God is wonderful…God is wonderful. On my way to see my mother-in-law with my family this evening, my sister-in-law whose family house is directly opposite the Local Government Area health centre (Iji Nike Cottage Hospital, near Enugu East Development Centre, Nkwo Nike) flagged us down (we didn't plan to stop by).
“Few minutes later, a young man in his late twenties ran in panting …. 'My wife is in labour in that health centre and there is nobody there.' In less than five minutes a mobile hospital was setup in the keke (tricycle) that brought in the woman.
To the glory of God, my wife, who is a doctor, delivered the woman of a bouncing baby boy at 6:30pm 01/01/2016. My sisters-in-law turned nurses instantly and the touchlight in my phone provided the lighting. Thank you Lord.”
Reacting, Nigerians, who commented on the post, were full of thanks to God and the Eteke's, especially the wife, for their bravery and selflessness.
Others applauded the sisters-in-law turned 'assistant nurses' and the owner of the tricycle for his patience.
The mother of the baby was also praised and congratulated while others wondered why the clinic had no staff on duty to attend to the woman.
