After Typhoon Haiyan battered the Philippine city of Tacloban, residents cheered a bit of good news in the midst of the debris when a baby girl was born. 21-year-old Emily Ortega gave birth at the Tacloban airport after surviving the storm herself. Ortega was in an evacuation center when the storm surge flooded the city. She had to swim and hold on to a pole before finding refuge at the airport terminal. Despite losing their homes and property to the storm, others in the airport and the military medics who assisted the delivery all cheered when Bea Joy Sagales was born. Medics said the baby was in good health and in the midst of everything else that was a miracle too.—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
