Meanwhile, his father, Mohammad, is seen helplessly watching from the bedroom door in dramatic footage that will be aired tonight at 9pm on More 4’s 999:On the Front Line.

Against the odds, Yasin is suddenly brought back to life as he beings to scream.

Explaining what happened, Chelsie said: ‘It’s one of the best things I have ever heard, I couldn’t believe it. What is the chance of getting a baby back after six minutes?

‘After three minutes your brain is starved of oxygen. The chances of survival become a lot less.

‘There’s a small suction unit in the maternity pack, that you have to suck on to clear the baby’s mouth and airway.’

Later, the programme shows Yasin four months on as a healthy and happy baby.
