HOUSTON — A woman in Houston, Texas went into labor at her apartment Monday.

Because of Tropical Storm Harvey, 32-year-old Annie Smith’s building was surrounded by water — preventing her from getting to the hospital.

So her neighbors formed a human chain, to help her through the flood waters to an empty dump truck, which became an emergency vehicle.

A crew from the Houston Fire Department showed up to help her deliver her baby girl.

Mother and child are doing just fine.
