- A massive storm hit Cape Town this week
- Amid the devastation, a mother gave birth to a baby
- Both mother and child are doing well
A woman has delivered a baby against all odds during the massive storm that has hit Cape Town, South Africa, this week. 32-year-old Noncedo Thinga gave birth to her miracle baby on Wednesday, June 7, in a neighbour's flooded house in Khayelitsha. She had sought refuge there because her own house was in a worse state.
Her neighbour, Ziyanda Ngcingi, and other residents called an ambulance after finding her. They cut off the baby's umbilical cord while they waited.
Although both Noncedo and her baby are fine, her neighbours say it was a miracle she gave birth in such difficult conditions.
