DJ Black Coffee breathes new life into his music. A heavily pregnant woman's water broke on Tuesday at the Botanic Gardens in Durban whilst jiving on the dance floor.
In a rather unique and unusual turn of events, a 23 year old concert goer at the Old Mutual Music at the Lake show went into labour and gave birth to a little girl at the concert venue inside the medical facility.
As DJ Black Coffee made an appearance on stage, Nonhle Makhoba from Inanda who was 10 days away from delivery, went into labour and was immediately moved from the concert area to the medical compound on site.
"It was a rather strange event to occur at a live music concert, but we were very pleased to have all the resources available to attend to the patient on site" explained organiser Stu Berry of Impi Concerts.
"Makhoba was initially placed inside the medical facility with the intention of transporting her to hospital for further care, but it all came about rather quickly and after around 45 minutes of labour, her new born was ready to come out. EMS paramedics Muhammed Dawood and Tommy Reid quickly reacted and delivered Nonhle's newborn child on site in perfect health" explained Berry.
Old Mutuals project manager Naledi Maphisa says a photographer had alerted them to the incident.
“One of the photographers who were working at the event told us that there’s a pregnant woman who is about to give birth. Her water broke and a DJ from Gagasi FM announced it on stage.
“It was funny, people clapped and cheered."
Makhoba was transported, along with her newborn and proud father to Addington hospital for further care.
