Lucky baby born in floods is nicknamed Kangkang




BEIJING, July 23 — At 12 am on July 21, five administrative villages in Dazhou Town of Changge City, central China’s Henan Province, were trapped by floods. Some villagers failed to be evacuated in time. A pregnant woman who was about to give birth was trapped in a health-care center in Dazhou town. Due to days of heavy rain, the health-care center had no water and no power, thus was no longer qualified for delivery.
