An expatriate woman working with a cleaning company gave birth inside a toilet at the Dubai International Airport, according to Emarat Al Youm.
The pregnant woman went into labour and locked herself inside a toilet for up to four hours before she gave birth.
Another female cleaner became suspicious when she heard “strange voices” coming from the toilet and informed her superior, who alerted the security.
A policewoman, who was accompanied by policemen, checked the toilet which was locked from inside and discovered that the woman had already given birth.
“A team of paramedics provided first aid to the mother and her baby before transferring them to Latifa Maternity Hospital for the necessary medical check-ups”, said Brigadier Ali Ateeq bin Lahej, director of airport security, Dubai Police.
