A woman and her babies are recovering in hospital after she gave birth to twins in Oppenheimer Park.

Around 11:00 last night, Vancouver Police officers were assisting with traffic control in the area of Oppenheimer Park when they were approached by a citizen who claimed that a woman had given birth in the park.

Officers found the woman on the south side of the park holding a newborn baby in her arms. She was in obvious distress and still showing signs of being in labour, and paramedics were called. As police and paramedics were assisting the woman, she delivered a second baby.

Both babies were taken by police and delivered into the hands of paramedics.
