KYIV, Ukraine — In a daring rescue mission, three premature babies were evacuated from Kyiv via ambulance, coordinated through Project DYNAMO, a Florida-based rescue nonprofit, Fox News reported.

The rescue mission, named “GEMINI” by Project DYNAMO, involved two doctors, two neonatal specialists, one nurse and a Ukrainian ambulance crew to evacuate the twin American infant boys and a British baby girl out of the city.

A press release from the organization said gunshots could be heard within earshot of the hospital as the evacuation was underway.
