Stabbed pregnant woman's baby born and "doing well"
Doctors delivered a baby who is said to be "doing well" after its pregnant mother was attacked and stabbed in a West Midlands street.
The 40-year-old woman was left in a critical condition following the attack by a man police said was known to her.
Police praised up to five men who "bravely" went to her aid in a "dangerous and volatile" situation.
A 41-year-old man arrested at the scene remains in custody.
The victim was attacked in Sutton Coldfield shortly after 15:00 GMT on Friday.
Passers-by flagged down police on Trinity Hill, Sutton Coldfield, shortly after the attack.
Two of the five suffered minor hand injuries and required hospital treatment.
Chief Insp Julian Harper, incident manager for West Midlands Police, confirmed a knife was used in the incident and said one man initially went to help the woman before being joined by four other men.
He said officers were "working hard" to piece together the incidents before the assault and praised the men for intervening.
"[They] bravely stepped into what was a dangerous and volatile situation, with complete disregard for their own safety and I commend them for their actions," he said.
West Midlands Ambulance Service said the woman was airlifted to hospital.
