A woman gave birth aboard an emergency dinghy after she was rescued from a flood disaster in Brazil.
Dramatic footage shows the moments just after the new mother delivered a healthy baby boy after a response team came to her aid.
The crew were loaded with supplies and heading for the city of Linhares in the eastern state of Espírito Santo when a villager told them a pregnant woman needed help urgently.
Two firefighters and a volunteer helped the 22-year-old heavily pregnant woman aboard – but the baby wouldn't wait!
One of the firefighters said: "Life is precious. Many have died in the floods. I think the birth of the child was a miracle made by our hard work."
More than 40 people have died following a week-long spell of torrential rain in the state.
