There’s a saying that goes: “you walk before you can run”, but chances are, this baby will probably just fly.
Another newborn baby boy has been awarded with free flights for life after his mother went into labour and gave birth to him while onboard a Buraq Air flight.
The airline was flying from Tripoli in Libya to Niamey, the capital of Niger. A Buraq Air employee named Amir Abu Sin told CNN that the infant was delivered safely into the world with the help of the flight’s cabin crew. To show her gratitude, the mother reportedly named her son after the plane’s captain, Abdul Baset.
Abdul Baset’s birth was recorded and a portion of it was uploaded on The Libya Observer’s Facebook account yesterday (8th September). In the 1-minute long clip, the staff can be seen cleaning the baby, who seems to be covered in blood.
Baset’s case is hardly the first though. Less than a month ago, a woman gave birth to a premature baby girl while onboard Cebu Pacific Air. The tiny tot was also rewarded with a lifetime of free flights from the airline.
Is giving birth while mid-air now becoming a trend? Sound off your thoughts in comments section below.
