Back-seat birth not covered by insurance or social security

Published lördag 14 april 2012 kl 13.14

Helping others can be costly, learnt a Gävle man, who decided to help a pregnant woman in distress, and gave her a lift to the hospital.

When she gave birth in the back of his car, the seat was ruined. But now neither the insurance companies, nor the health service, want to pay up and help him replace it.

"The hospital never asked him to do this", says the head of the birthing department at Gävle hospital to newspaper Arbetarbladet.

The woman herself cannot afford to reward her helper, as she is receiving benefits, which do not pay for costs like this.
