A baby boy was delivered 35000 feet above the sea level on Sunday, 18 June 2017 on Jet Airways from Saudi Arabia (Dammam) to India (Kochi). The newborn was rewarded with a free lifetime pass for air travel.
A 30 weeks pregnant lady went into premature labor and a baby boy was born around 8:45 A.M. An emergency landing of Boeing 737 took place at the Mumbai airport and both the mother and the baby were rushed to a nearby hospital there and were said to be doing well.
Thanks to the quick actions of cabin crew and a trained paramedic on board, the baby was born healthy before the plane landed. The airline commended its crew “for their response and promptness that saw them successfully translate their training into life-saving action”
The plane later resumed its onward journey to Kochi and reached its destination at 12:45 P.M. after a delay of 90 minutes.
