Turkish Airlines Crew: Rejoicing after assisting childbirth procedure mid-air

Cabin crew on a Turkish Airlines flight celebrated the arrival of an extra passenger at 42,000ft (12,800 metres) when a woman gave birth to a baby girl.
Passengers also assisted at the birth, which took place soon after take-off on a flight from Guinea’s capital Conakry to Istanbul via Ouagadougou.

The mother and baby, named Kadiju, were taken to hospital when the Boeing 737 landed in the Burkina Faso capital. Both were reported to be tired but in good health.

“They promptly responded to assist her childbirth during the flight.” It was on Saturday April 8.
