A Cape Town magistrate found herself delivering a baby rather than a judgment in court

, the Cape Times reported on Tuesday.

Acting senior magistrate Pearl Andrews was on her way to a prosecutor's office at the Wynberg court on Monday when an interpreter told her a woman was in labour.

She followed security guards to the toilet to assist the woman in labour, Koliswa Thwala.

When she got there, she borrowed a cleaner's rubber gloves and delivered the baby.

According to the report, Thwala and her baby boy were taken to the Retreat Maternity Hospital.
