Two hero police officers have been praised for rushing a heavily-pregnant mum-to-be to hospital – just in the nick of time.
Constables Lee Watkinson and Stuart Lupton were flagged down by Charlotte Finney’s partner Aaron Grayson on Princess Parkway in Manchester, after Charlotte realised her baby couldn’t wait to say hello. The officers wasted no time in ushering Aaron, 27, and Charlotte, 24, into their police-liveried BMW X5.
With blue lights activated and sirens wailing, they were rushed to Saint Mary’s Hospital – where beautiful little Odin Blue Grayson was born just 20 minutes later.
Odin – named because of his parents’ love of Nordic names and history – is now happy and healthy back at home in Timperley and the proud parents invited both PC Watkinson and Lupton over to say a personal thank-you. Dad Aaron said Charlotte’s waters broke suddenly and they found themselves in a ‘unique situation’ at the side of the road.
Aaron revealed the quick-thinking officers even helped him to carry Charlotte’s bags into hospital.
