Shortly before the New Year, a scheduled airliner had to make an unplanned landing at the Czech Vaclav Havel Airport in Prague. But the reason is extremely positive – because a baby was born during the flight. The machine started in Birmingham, UK, and actually had Bucharest as its destination, as the CTK news agency reported on Friday.
When the first signs of birth appeared, the plane immediately changed course. But even the change of course came too late and the child was born in the air. Mother and child were taken to a hospital in Prague, but are well. This was announced by a spokeswoman for the CTK airport service.
The other passengers were able to continue the flight after the unforeseen stopover. Prague Airport boss Jiri Pos wished the newborn the best of luck on Twitter. A spokesman said the newborn boy weighed 2.75 kilograms. His mother is a Romanian who was on a flight home from the UK.
