Woman delivers twins in Oppenheimer Park 0
Out with the old and in with the new.
As city crews were demolishing a dilapidated building threatening to collapse on Powell St. across from Oppenheimer Park Wednesday night, a woman in the park was giving birth.
Vancouver police said as officers were conducting crowd control while the structure was being taken down, someone approached and said a woman had just delivered a baby in the park.
Police found the woman on the south side of Oppenheimer Park holding her newborn while in “obvious distress” and didn’t seem to be quite done with her labour.
As police and paramedics were helping the new mother she doubled-down and delivered a second baby.
Both newborns were handed over to paramedics and the woman and her twins are now recovering in hospital, according to police.
