WATCH: Kurdistan24 SNG vehicle rescues pregnant woman in Mosul

The Kurdistan24 team inside Mosul on Saturday rescued a pregnant woman who was a few hours away from giving birth to her child.

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region (Kurdistan24) – The Kurdistan24 team inside Mosul on Saturday rescued a pregnant woman who was a few hours away from giving birth to her child.

In the footage below, a Kurdistan24 crew helps the pregnant woman inside the live Satellite News Gathering (SNG) vehicle to transport her from eastern Mosul to the nearest hospital 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) away.

Kurdistan24 correspondent Masoud Mohammed, who also took the lady’s 4-year-old son to the hospital, stated the woman was suffering from severe pain.

“It was a battle zone,” Mohammed said. “There were no ambulances or emergency teams.”

“So, we had to leave our media work and help deliver the lady to the nearest hospital or medical team,” he continued.

Mohammed mentioned that the woman gave birth after arriving at the hospital, and her health condition was now stable.

Kurdistan24 teams have been embedded with Iraqi and Kurdish Peshmerga forces since the beginning of the Mosul operation on Oct. 17.

After the launch of the operation, civilians inside the city continued to flee from the Islamic State (IS), trying to reach Peshmerga or Iraqi forces front lines.

The extremist group occupied Mosul in June 2014. Since then, the group has lost most of the territory it once controlled.
