Baby on board Qatar Airways B777
A Qatar Airways Boeing B777 en route from Miami to Doha diverted to Newfoundland’s remote Gander airport recently when a passenger went into labor and gave birth mid-flight.
Fortunately for the woman, there were two doctors onboard to assist with the birth, according to The Beacon newspaper of Gander. The woman gave birth to a healthy boy, Brian Hicks, safety manager at Gander International Airport, said.
“Thirty minutes before the plane was preparing to land, she gave birth to a baby boy,” Hicks says to AFP, adding: “That’s the youngest passenger we’ve ever had at Gander.”
The Qatar Airways B777 was carrying 337 passengers and landed in Gander at around 4:30 am local time, the Canadian Press reports. The aircraft was on the ground at Gander for about two hours and then continued on to Doha after the mother and baby were taken to a Newfoundland hospital.
The airline has a policy of not accepting pregnant women who have reached the 36th week of their pregnancy. It was not clear from the media reports if the woman did not abide by the rule or if the baby came earlier than expected.
Regardless, AFP reports that mother and baby were in good health and were “thought to still be in Canada.”
