Thanks to helpful app, mother was able to safely meet her valentines date


Cindy was heading home on a busy afternoon to go prepare for the arrival her valentines date, only she had to pull over as her date arrived a little early.


Pretoria, South Africa – Cindy left work in a hurry on Wednesday the 14th of February so that she could go home and prepare for the most important date of her life. Cindy only made it halfway home before she had to pull over on the side of the road.

Her date was early, and there was no stopping her arrival. You see Cindy was 39 weeks pregnant and baby Valentine was in a hurry to make her appearance.

“I was on my way home to pack my bag for the hospital,” says Cindy.

“I thought that my baby was coming, but I had no idea that it would all happen so fast. I was almost home when I had to pull over onto the side of the road because I just could not drive any longer.”

Stuck on the side of the road in peak-hour traffic in Pretoria, Cindy did the only thing that she could think of and requested assistance through the Dialdirect Namola emergency app. Within 20 minutes of the request for assistance, an ER24 ambulance arrived on the scene.

Cindy gave birth in the hospital a couple of hours later.

“My little valentine was born in the hospital a couple of hours after the ambulance fetched me. I am ever so grateful to Dialdirect Namola and ER24 for their fast response,” says Cindy.

“They even went as far as to repark my car so that it was not left on the side of the road. Now that is what I call above and beyond.”

This was all thanks to the safety app. Cindy, her baby and her car all had a happy ending thanks to the help from the team of emergency services.
