Viral News :A baby born at an altitude of 35,000 feet above Nile river
An interesting incident that took place during a flight on Qatar Airways a month ago has now been reported by the international media. The shocking incident took place on December 5, 2021 on a Qatar Airways flight from Qatar to Uganda. That is, an immigrant woman gave birth to a baby girl at an altitude of 35,000 feet above the Nile river. The young woman, who lives as an immigrant in Saudi Arabia, was returning to her home in Uganda.
According to a BBC report, about an hour after takeoff, the woman showed signs of pain and was immediately asked by flight attendants if there were any doctors on board via the intercom. Fortunately, a professor at the University of Toronto, Dr. Ayesha Khatib was also traveling on the same flight. She was returning from an event as part of Covid-19 activities. When she was resting on the way, the doctor heard the question from the intercom and immediately without any hesitation the doctor went to the young woman who was showing signs of discomfort.
At that time, people were gathered around the young woman, the doctor wondered for a moment if there was a heart attack or something, but when she saw the young woman lying in the seat, the doctor caught the thing. The doctor immediately asked the two passengers on board for help and asked the rest to sit in their seats. The woman gave birth to a baby girl under the supervision of the Canadian doctor.
