Nigerian Mum Gives Birth on board an international rescue ship in the Mediterranean Sea.

A Nigerian family is celebrating the birth of their son – just hours after they were rescued from an overcrowded dinghy (with about 250 other people) off the coast of Libya. 

Mum Faith, dad Otis and their two other children were amongst those taken on board an international rescue ship in the Mediterranean Sea. 

Thousands of people are trying to make the hazardous crossing from Libya to Europe in the hope of starting a new life.
