Baby born in court
A Cape Town magistrate found herself delivering a baby rather than a judgment in court
Acting senior magistrate Pearl Andrews was on her way to a prosecutor’s office at the Wynberg court on Monday when an interpreter told her a woman was in labour.
She followed security guards to the toilet to assist the woman in labour, Koliswa Thwala.
When she got there, she borrowed a cleaner’s rubber gloves and delivered the baby.
Thwala and her baby boy were taken to the Retreat Maternity Hospital.
