An unusual event occurred when a pregnant woman boarded a Turkish Airlines flight and gave birth to a child mid-flight, on Monday.
A Turkish Airlines flight welcomed a new passenger on-board after a pregnant female passenger named Nafi Diaby gave birth to a baby girl mid-flight. Diaby was 28-weeks old pregnant with the child and soon after the flight flew from Guinea’s capital, Conakry, the woman went into labour.
The flight crew made sure the baby was delivered along with the aid of some other passengers who voluntarily stepped in to ensure the child was born without any complications.
The baby and her mother were taken to a hospital as soon as the Boeing 777 landed at Burkina Faso capital, Ouagadougou.
Turkish Airlines also took to Twitter to announce the good news via an illustration.
