Ms Maria Pingo was reportedly stranded and unable to get to the hospital on her own amid devastating floods that claimed lives in Lambayeque, northern Peru.

Fortunately, the rescue crew arrived with a Peruvian Air Force helicopter and picked up Ms Pingo. She delivered a few moments later right inside the military chopper.

Sources privy to what went down that day say there were some very tense moments leading up to the delivery as the crew members struggled to find the exact location of the 20-year-old mum.

The troops reportedly asked her family, who had called for help as she went into labour, to set a tyre on fire so that they could trace Ms Pingo's location.
