Some people think flight attendants are only helpful for handing out snacks, but they’re trained to handle a variety of emergency situations to keep flyers safe.
when passenger Nafi Diaby, started going into labor at just 28 weeks pregnant, the flight attendants on a Turkish Airlines flight from Conakry, Guinea to Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso stayed incredibly calm and got to work delivering the baby.
“The cabin crew noticed that a woman passenger named Nafi Diaby, [who was] 28 weeks into her pregnancy, was suffering childbirth pains,” Turkish Airlines said in a statement. “They promptly responded to assist her childbirth during the flight.”
“The lady was in great pain,” flight attendant Bouthayna Inanir said. “And then the baby was on the seat. This was the hardest part. I had to grab the baby. I took her and gave her to the mother.” Despite being born prematurely at about 42,000 feet in the air, the baby named Kadiju and her mother were healthy and doing well by the time the plane landed and they were brought to a hospital.
