During the typhoon that hit the Philippines late last week, one mother-to-be swam for her life—and her unborn child's life.
Emily Ortega, 21, gave birth Monday to a baby girl at an emergency clinic the local airport. After Typhoon Haiyan struck the city of Tacloban, killing thousands of people in its wake, Ortega survived by clinging to a pole in the flooded city, according to NBC News.
She then swam from the evacuation center, where she had gone before the typhoon hit, to the ravaged airport.
Ortega then gave birth to Bea Joy Sagales. The baby is named after her grandmother, who is still missing. Ortega's husband was in Manila, about 360 miles northwest of Tacloban, at the time, according to the news site.
