Johannesburg - Guards from the Bad Boyz security company and street cleaners helped a woman deliver her baby on a Hillbrow pavement in the early hours of Friday morning. 

The company's Hendrik de Klerk told News24 that a security officer was called to help after an expectant mother was about to deliver her baby at the entrance to a building just after 01:00. 

"We rushed to the scene and called an ambulance. The ambulance arrived, but the baby boy was already born with the help of street cleaners and Bad Boyz guards."

De Klerk said female Pikitup cleaners were doing amazing work in the area. 

"They walk alone at night, cleaning dark streets - where the street lights are always off. We always keep an eye on them," he said. 

"There are amazing people in Hillbrow... it is truly a great town. It is just the building hijackers and a few skelms giving it a bad name."
