A female survivor of the Shenzhen landslide, which devastated an industrial area of the south China city on December 20, gave birth to a healthy baby girl on January 1.

The woman, surnamed Jin, was 39 weeks into her pregnancy when the landslide raged. Her house and all factories nearby were buried, but she and her family members were lucky enough to escape in time. The extreme sense of fright, however, made the expectant mother feel much discomfort.

After being sent to the hospital, Jin was given intensive care by the doctors and nurses. The head nurse even helped to gather basic necessities for the mom-to-be and the baby, since Jin's family had left every possession behind in the ruins. The hospital service staff also joined the efforts by collecting supplies and providing Jin with a temporary shelter.

The mother named her daughter Yuxi, meaning "full of hope."

"Thanks for all the care and donations! Thank you for the smooth delivery amid the disaster," said a spokesperson from Jin's family.
