Senior Sergeant-Major Surachai Borwornthip and Lance-Corporal Korrakot Hakaew were patrolling in Liab Kanklong Chonlapratan Road just before 7.30pm when they came across a motorcycle and sidecar blocking the road.

A pregnant Burmese woman, 27-year-old Mana Yeehorm, was lying in the sidecar while the man driving the motorcycle, a relative, was shouting for help.

The two policemen helped deliver the baby boy as much as they could, and called a rescue team and doctors of Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital, who later arrived at the scene.

Both mother and baby were doing well, and were taken to the hospital afterwards.
