A mountain rescue team climbed to the aid of a pregnant woman who went into early labour in the Austrian Alps in Tyrol .
The 30- year - old woman, who runs a mountain hut for climbers, started to have preterm contractions early on Tuesday morning but due to bad weather an emergency helicopter could not rescue her .
Instead a team of 15 climbers , including a mountain rescue doctor and a gynaecologist,
climbed up to meet her and then took her downhill to a mountain pasture in Kartisch.
Even then the conditions were still too bad for the helicopter to attempt a safe landing , and the woman gave birth at 5pm, at 2, 250 metres
above sea level .
By 6pm the weather had improved and mother and baby were flown to
hospital in Lienz. They are reported to be in a stable condition .
