WATCH: Giving birth during Super Typhoon Lawin
ISABELA, Philippines – At the height of Super Typhoon Lawin (Haima), Ilagan City resident Jamaica Navarro didn't expect to go into labor. With floodwater rising and roads blocked by fallen trees, help could not get to her.
Fortunately, the Rescue 1124 team was able to give instructions through a phone call. The baby was successfully delivered in the wee hours of October 20 – alive and healthy. – Rappler.com
