Dad uses internet to deliver baby


A Royal Navy engineer in Cornwall delivered his baby son after watching a instructional video on YouTube.

Marc Stephens watched the videos as a precaution when his wife Jo started to feel some discomfort, but he had to deliver the baby himself when his wife went into labour and started giving birth before an ambulance could arrive.

Amy Cole reports.
