Hospital is a place where babies are born with the help of Doctors and nurses, imagine if a baby is born in a flight, then how difficult it would be ?
Recently in a Turkish Airlines a baby was born with the help of crew members where they went beyond their duties, when a pregnant women went into labor at 42, 000 feet. Nafi Diaby was 28 weeks pregnant when she began experiencing contractions during the flight.
The international airlines company issued a statement praising the efforts of the crew. It said: “The cabin crew noticed that a woman passenger named Nafi Diaby, 28 weeks into her pregnancy, was suffering childbirth pains.”
“They promptly responded to assist her childbirth during the flight,” it added.
The Turkish Airlines flight’s pilot then made an emergency landing in Bukrina Fasco so the mother and the newborn girl could receive medical attention before continuing on to Istanbul. They are both said to be in good health.
Passengers and flight attendants took pictures with the baby and shared them on social media.
The mother and baby, named Kadiju, were taken to hospital when the Boeing 737 landed in the Bukrina Fasco capital, Ouagadougou, in order to be kept under observation. Both are reported to be tired but in good health.
Now there is a question around the little girl’s nationality.
The United Nations have specified that any bub born on a flight should be awarded the nationality of the airline, in this case Kadiju would have Turkish citizenship.
