MUMBAI: An Etihad Airways flight travelling from Abu Dhabi to Jakarta was diverted to Mumbai on Wednesday morning after a woman passenger gave birth onboard.
The woman was rushed to hospital as soon as Flight EY 474 touched down at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai, according to ANI.
In September, a Jakarta-bound Etihad plane was forced to return to Abu Dhabi minutes after take-off due to a reported engine problem mid-air.
Last year, a woman gave birth onboard Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) Multan-bound flight from Saudi Arabia.
The entire crew of the airline came forward and helped the woman to deliver.
In a similar incident, a Nigerian woman gave birth onboard a flight after she went into labour a week earlier than her delivery date.
