This is the heart-wrenching moment a paramedics brought a newborn baby back to life after six minutes without a pulse.

West Midlands Ambulance service medics Simon Lees and Chelsie Kennedy faced a race against time to revive Yasin just moments after his home birth in Coventry.

His father, Mohammad, watches in the doorway of the bedroom helplessly as the paramedics use their thumbs to get the tot's heart started.

Following an eerie silence Yasin begins to scream.

The incredible footage was filmed as part of More4's new documentary series '999: On the Front Line'.

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."

Simon added: "You're waiting for that initial cough, that snort, that cry anything."

After bringing the baby back to life, he is wrapped in a blanket and Chelsie and Simon cut the umbilical chord.

Yasin is said to be healthy and thriving four months after the birth.
