Video captures mother in labor as Beirut explosion shatters hospital room

Emmanuelle Khnaisser was preparing to give birth as a devastating explosion hit Beirut on Tuesday and tore through her hospital room, her husband Edmound told Reuters. Edmound captured the incident — including the safe birth of their baby boy — on video. 

The video shows windows of the hospital shattering just after Emmanuelle is wheeled into the delivery room. Edmound continues to film the scene even as he’s shaken by the blast.

“My son George was born under a catastrophic blast, I did not believe we came out alive,” Edmound told Reuters. 

Doctors and nurses — working in near-darkness after the explosions — were able to safely deliver the baby boy, who the couple named George, Edmound said. Edmound took photos of the entire process, later praising the hospital workers on social media, Reuters reports.

“Thank you for bringing me safely into this world,” he said on behalf of George.

“Men’s and nations’ finest hour consist of those moments when
extraordinary challenge is met by extraordinary response.” 
 
 Neal A. Maxwell

As the days and nights have blended together over the past couple
of weeks during the growing coronavirus threat, there’s one
thought that continues to rise in my mind.

It’s this: How fortunate; how very fortunate we are to have our
dedicated medical experts and health care workers during this
uncertain time.

We don’t yet know how far, how fast, and how hard coronavirus
will hit our nation or our state, but what we do know, right now,
is that there are professionals we can count on when our backs
are against the wall. And those people are working around the
clock to prepare for increased surge capacity. Many are taking
unprecedented measures to expand their ability to care for our
current and anticipated COVID-19 cases, not to mention
