Woman gives birth to baby boy on flight to India with help of onboard doctors after going into labour two months early.
The mum-to-be was just seven months pregnant and so was caught completely by surprise when she started experiencing abdominal pains shortly after take off on October 5.
When the Air India crew realised what was going on, they found two doctors and four nurses who were travelling on board to help.
Thankfully, with their assistance, a baby boy arrived safely while the plane was still mid-air across Bulgaria.
Cabin crew turned the galley – where food items are stores on a plane – into a temporary delivery room and gathered pillows and clothes to help the woman.
The plane then made an emergency landing at the nearest airport in Frankfurt, Germany, where mother and baby were met by medical staff and taken to hospital to get checked over.
Air India has vowed to fly them both home to India when they are well enough.
The flight continued on its journey, landing in Kochi six hours behind schedule.
