A miracle amongst the flooding devastation in northern Bolivia.... Estella Parada gave birth to a baby boy here at her home early Saturday morning. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) MOTHER ESTELLA PARADA, SAYING: "With so much water I couldn't find a taxi and I couldn't get out of here so the baby was born right here." Heavy rains and floods have inundated parts of the country leaving at least 38 people dead and some 40,000 households affected. Forecasters say more rain is expected in the coming days with the northern part of the country likely to be the worst hit. Despite this, Estella says she's grateful for her good fortune.... she's decided to name her child Moises- or Moses- meaning survivor of the water.
