Woman gives birth to a premature baby girl at 30,000ft

A China Airlines flight landed in Alaska with an extra passenger after an expectant mother gave birth to a baby girl more than eight weeks early. The Bali to Los Angeles flight was forced to make an emergency landing on Thursday after a Taiwanese passenger’s waters broke six hours into the 19 hour journey.

A doctor who happened to be on board the flight delivered the premature baby at 30,000ft after the crew asked passengers for medical help. After going into labour, the pilot informed the airline company and requested permission to land at Ted Stevens Anchorage Airport in Alaska out of consideration for the safety of the woman and her baby. However, 30 minutes before landing, the woman gave birth to the child – and received a round of applause from fellow passengers following the first cry.

In a video shot by a woman on the flight, air stewards can be seen holding the baby, wiping her with tissues and wrapping her, and her mother, in large blankets. Speaking to a woman, the passenger recording says: ‘This is a once in a lifetime thing. These tourists will never experience this again.’

After landing in Alaska, the woman, who was flying alone, and baby were taken to a local hospital, where both of them were reported to be in good condition.

The plane refuelled following the landing and arrived in Los Angeles three hours late.

On Wednesday last week, another expectant mother – Heba Majdy – gave birth to daughter Nancy at 30,000ft on board an Egypt-bound Jazeera Airways flight.

The eight-month pregnant woman reportedly told cabin crew that she thought she was about to have a baby before delivering the child with the help of a travelling doctor – who was also on the flight. According to Daily News Egypt, the airline since contacted Ms Majdy and has offered baby Nancy free flights with them until the age of 18.
