Pushing a baby out of you is difficult at the best of times (we imagine), but doing so thousands of feet above the ground is just not ideal.
Thankfully, for a 28-weeks-pregnant woman named Nafi Diaby, though, the crew of Turkish Airlines flight TK538 from the Guinean capital of Conarky were on hand to save the day.
Airline crew noticed she was in pain, and before you could say "OMG this woman is having a baby, does anyone know how to deliver human beings?!" Crew members and some passengers stepped in to help deliver the newborn. And it's a girl!
Staff and passengers, equally chuffed.
Her name's Kadiju and she’s perf. Both her and mum were taken to hospital in Burkina Faso's capital, Ouagadougou, once the plane landed. The airline says they're both doing great, if a little exhausted.
Way to be awesome, everybody. We're only slightly jealous that Kadiju gets to have "born in international waters" on her birth certificate now.
