ORENBURG, January 9. /TASS/. A woman gave preliminary birth on January 3 in a car stuck in snow on a main road in the Orenburg region in the southern Urals Mountains, the regional government told TASS on Saturday.
"The premature baby was delivered by Natalya Netesova, a paramedic of the Kvarkensky central hospital, who acted like a real heroine in a snow-covered car and kept the baby warm with her own body heat," the press service said.
The new mother and baby are safe and healthy at present, it said.
Overnight to Saturday, traffic on the main road connecting the cities of Orenburg and Orsk was suspended again because of a blizzard. Later in the afternoon, three more automobile roads were blocked. At least 80 people were evacuated, with 12 people out of them hospitalised and another 60 taken to temporary shelters.
On Saturday, extremely bad weather stopped traffic on the main road between Orenburg and Orsk again. Rescue and road agencies have been engaged in clearing the roads from snow drifts.
On Friday, Russian Deputy Emergencies Minister Vladimir Stepanov ordered to put up heating points and send special vehicles to prevent traffic jams and road accidents on that section of the road.
