Pink’s concert in Liverpool on Tuesday night was eventful in the most unexpected way.
Liverpool Echo reports that 32-year-old Denise Jones went into labour and gave birth during the concert.
John Matthews and Dani Berg, who were on duty as crowd doctors during the show, got the call that Jones had gone into labour and made their way to her on the opposite end of the stadium.
“When we reached her, it was quite clear the patient was heavily pregnant and showing signs of being in labour,” Dr. Matthews said. “We took the decision to move her as quickly as possible to the First Aid Room underneath the Kop stand.”
As they were treating Jones, it became clear the birth was going to happen sooner rather than later.
“We continued to assess her and established she was going to have to deliver the baby in the stadium as there was not enough time to get her to hospital,” Dr. Matthews said.
The delivery apparently took less than five minutes, without the help of any medical equipment.
“The initial reaction was disbelief. Often we get calls to things that aren’t what they seem at first, but this was one was,” Dr. Berg said.
Jones ended up naming the baby Dolly Pink, after the singer she was there to see.
“The plan was to call her Dolly Louise but since she was born in the concert we’ve changed it to Dolly Pink,” she said.
