NEWS A Filipino woman delivered a baby aboard Dubai-Manila flight #5J015


A woman gave birth to a premature but healthy baby girl mid-flight while travelling from the United Arab Emirates to the Philippines, forcing the plane to carry out an emergency landing in Hyderabad.

The mother, whose due date was two months away, went into labour on board the Cebu Pacific Air flight Sunday as it flew from Dubai to Manila.

Panicked flight attendants started calling out for medical assistance, discovering two nurses among the passengers, before turning the front of the cabin into a makeshift delivery room.
