Doctors at a hospital in Jammu and Kashmir's Anantnag district kept their nerve to deliver a baby through the lower-segment cesarean section while an earthquake shook the Valley on Tuesday. 

"Emergency LSCS (lower-segment cesarean section) was going on at SDH (Sub District Hospital) Bijbehara, Anantnag, during which strong tremors of earthquake were felt.

"Kudos to the staff of SDH Bijbehara who conducted the LSCS smoothly and thank god everything is alright," according to a tweet from the district's chief medical officer. 

The tweet included a video that showed how the staff focused on the job while everything around them was shaking.
