A Mathayom student helped deliver a baby boy after a woman went into labour while walking on a street in Tak’s Mae Sot district which borders Myanmar. The student, known as Buntorn, was walking home from school when she saw a woman in pain and people gathered around.

Buntorn realised the woman was about to give birth and quickly got the proper medical supplies from a nearby rescue vehicle. She helped others to deliver the baby. Buntorn, who is Mathayom 6 (Grade 12), says she used skills she learned in a training session at Phophra Hospital.
