Another lovely reunion

Meanwhile, Briefly News earlier reported that a soldier, Benjamin Farinazzo, who helped a woman deliver a baby during a war many years ago, narrated the story of how it all happened in an Instagram post.

He said that while he was still serving at war, a man and two women, one of whom was heavily pregnant came calling under heavy rain.

The soldier said that with the lifesaving skills he had been taught as a soldier, he was able to help the woman to a safe place.
