A Nigerian woman identified as Nweke Ifeoma, gave birth to a baby on a Turkish Airlines during her flight from Istanbul, Turkey to Manchester, the United Kingdom on Monday.

In a statement on Tuesday released by Turkish-run agency read that “the flight was diverted to Vienna International Airport, where paramedics were waiting for the new mother and baby upon landing.”


A doctor who happened to be onboard and the crew, helped Nigerian citizen Nweke Ifeoma deliver the baby. “Cabin crew members are trained for these type of situations,” the statement added.

Paramedics met the new mum and her baby on the tarmac before taking them to the hospital.
