A pregnant passenger gave birth while travelling on a number 204 trolleybus in Bratislava on Tuesday, April 24.

"Shortly after 18:00, a young mother on our trolleybus went into labour on Stromová Street in Kramáre. Other passengers alerted the driver, who immediately called the dispatchers. They set off with their flashing lights on and secured the trolleybus so as to prevent other passengers from boarding," Bratislava public transport company spokesperson Agáta Staneková told the TASR newswire.

A doctor, along with other medical staff, was summoned to the vehicle by the dispatchers and assisted the young mother. She gave birth to a healthy baby girl.
