in #CASE you missed it… Police officers carried a pregnant woman on their shoulders for six miles through heavy snow.
A 23-year-old woman, Kamini, went into labor January 9, and phoned for an ambulance to take her to hospital.
However, heavy snow meant paramedics could not reach her remote Indian village of Bhont, near Shimla in the foothills of the Himalayas.
Kamini and her mother Sarla were losing hope of getting treatment, but then six policemen arrived at the house.
They wrapped Kamini in a quilt and asked her to lie down on the cot they brought with them. Then they started the long walk down the mountain, trudging for three and a half hours through the ice and snow to Shimla.
They arrived at 9.30pm, and Kamini was admitted to the hospital where she gave birth to a healthy baby girl.
