The incredible moment a Russian tourist gave birth in the Red Sea has been captured on camera. Hadia Hosny El Said managed to snap photos of the stunning scene from her uncle’s balcony in the holiday resort of Dahab, Egypt, before posting them on her Facebook page.
Hadia detailed that the older man carrying the baby is a doctor who specializes in water births – so it appears as if the location for the birth was predetermined. In two of the other photos, a woman, presumably the mother, can be seen with her head in her hands, clearly overwhelmed by the occasion.
Since posting the photos to Facebook, Hadia’s update has received over 2,500 shares. In another of the staggering photos, the doctor could be seen carrying the baby across the beach, with the placenta being transported in an accompanying bucket.
While the identity of the mother and her newborn remains unknown, it appears that both were in good health following the birth.
Hadia explained that the woman had gone for a swim before going into labor, and was followed by her partner along with the doctor who helped her deliver the baby and carry it back to shore.
Wishing this family all the best!
