about the video
A heavily pregnant woman on Thursday was airlifted by the Indian Navy from the floods in Kerala and gave birth to a boy shortly after the rescue. The Navy said a doctor was lowered to assess the woman before she was lifted into the helicopter. Thousands of stranded people were waiting for rescue on Saturday and officials pleaded for more help as relentless monsoon floods battered the south Indian state of Kerala, where more than 190 have died in a little over a week and much of the state is partially submerged.
