'Snow-white' born in snow-bound village


A baby born in a Croatian village cut off by a blizzard is to be called "Snow-White", the Sata internet news site reported on Sunday.

Her mother, Marta Glavota, 30, called emergency services for help to deliver the baby, but snow, which has been falling since Thursday, closed off all access to her southern village of Vitusa.

Emergency services got to within 4km of the village before being forced back.

A doctor then called the pregnant woman and gave advice over the phone to two neighbours, who assisted in Sunday's birth of the black-haired girl Snjezana, meaning snow-white in Croatian.

Both mother and daughter were doing well, Sata said.
