IN PICS! Lab technician pulls '3 idiots' movie scene, helps pregnant woman deliver baby on moving train

A physically challenged lab technician from Delhi pulled a movie-like delivery on a running train when a pregnant woman on board complained of labour pain.
Samparkranti COVID-19 special express, that was bound for Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh (MP) had a female passenger on board who was soon due for delivery.
The train was on its way when the woman was heard howling in pain. Sunil Prajapati, a lab technician who was heading home to Sagar in MP heard the cries and rushed to help the woman.
Prajapati delivered the child with an eye doctor on video conferencing, making do with what was available on the train, including a thread string plucked out of a shawl and a shaving blade.
Prajapati emerged as a Hindi-film hero, reminiscent of the climax scene from the movie '3 Idiots' when Rancho and his friends delivered a child in a college with instructions from the doctor."There was no time to spare and I followed her (the doctor's) instruction carefully. Fortunately, I managed to arrange for a fresh unused blade from a passenger, with which I cut the umbilical cord," said Prajapati.
The woman, identified as Kiran, had a history of miscarriage, having suffered three earlier. "Railway staff went out of their way to help me. They used video calling, something which I could not have imagined for my delivery," she told the publication.
