The cell phones of friends and relatives of a pregnant woman were recruited at the hospital on the island of Samos on Friday night to help the woman give birth during a power blackout.
The woman was in the process of giving birth when a general power blackout occurred on Friday night and the hospital's generator also stopped working 20 minutes later.

The woman's friends and relatives waiting outside the delivery room suddenly heard the obstetrician calling them to light up the room with whatever they could, and the delivery of the infant was completed under the light cast by their cell phones.

The local prosecutor was informed of the incident immediately afterwards.
