A 40 weeks pregnant woman had one hell of a fishing trip, after she had decided to accompany her husband and relatives to a lake amidst dense marshy forest in Yakutia. When she went into labor, her husband and sister tried to take her to a hospital, but their offroader got stuck in a swamp.
The spot was unreachable on any vehicle, the Russian Ministry of Health reports, so emergency responders had to force-march there for miles after the stranded group had managed to get a signal. The physicians were able to help the bleeding woman, while armed police officers protected them from rutting brown bears circling around.
AT vehicles, sent to the rescue one by one got stuck in the swamp, so the responders had to carry the mother and her newborn daughter to a highway, where they were picked up and rushed to a hospital. Both are doing well.
