On Sunday, a Kerala woman gave birth to a baby mid-air while travelling on a Jet Airways plane. The flight was on its way to India from Saudi Arabia with 162 passengers.
The plane was diverted to Mumbai when the woman went into labour. With this, the crew declared a medical emergency. But she delivered the baby when the plane was still over the Arabian Sea at a height of 35,000 feet. Both the baby and mother are in a stable condition. After landing in Mumbai, they were rushed to a hospital.
With this, the Jet Airways announced that the child would get a free lifetime pass for any travel on the carrier.
