An Army medical team on Sunday helped deliver two babies - a boy and a girl - at a makeshift centre in Sabola area of rain-ravaged Uttarakhand.

 
After trekking nearly 15 kms, the team had yesterday reached Tijan village which has a population of nearly 400 people.
 
When the team led by Capt R Patil found that two pregnant women required urgent medical attention, they requisitioned a lady doctor.
 
Army doctor Capt Febba Susan was heli-dropped in a nearby area today from where she reached the village after a 10-km trek, DG Military Operations Lt Gen Vinod Bhatia told PTI.
 
She helped deliver the two babies - a boy and a girl - at the makeshift medical centre.
 
"The newborns and their mothers are in good health," he said. While Capt Susan has left the area, the medical team is still in the area helping locals.
