Nurses Rescue 35 Newborns from Fire 👩‍⚕️

On the fourth floor of the Phillippine General Hospital in Manila, a fire broke out and everyone was told to evacuate. Kathrina Macababbad and her colleagues were working in the neonatal intensive care unit at the time. Without hesitation, they grabbed all the babies that could breathe without a ventilator, since they could remain stable through the evacuation. Then, she and one other nurse, Jomar Mallari, were compelled to return and rescue the rest of the ward. They made five trips, carrying a baby in one arm and an Ambu bag with the other to assist breathing. Between them, all 35 babies were safely evacuated.
