Woman gives birth at 42,000 feet on Turkish Airlines flight to Ouagadougou


Flight crew on a passenger jet landed with an extra person on-board when a woman gave birth at 42,000ft. Nafi Diaby went into labour while flying from Conakry, Guinea, to Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso.



Cabin crew sprung into action to help deliver the little girl, and both mother and baby are reported to be doing well. Mother and baby were taken to hospital to be kept under observation when the Boeing 737-900 type aircraft landed in the West African nation on Friday.
