UCL MBBS student helps deliver a baby at Warren Street station
21 January 2019
First year UCL medical student Hamzah Selim helped deliver a baby at Warren Street tube station. He responded to the cries of the mother, who had gone into labour, and called upon his medical training to assist.
"I just saw someone that needed help, and though I was scared, did my best to help her. I would like to mention that I’ve been on a terrific neonatal student selected component module over the past couple months, which did come in handy in this situation! Really this is a testament to UCL’s great teaching and I am humbled to be a part of this university."
Professor Deborah Gill, UCL Medical School Director said:
"Hamzah is a credit to us and embodies the spirit of the sort of people we chose to be UCL Doctors"
