Baby Delivered Aboard Air France Flight

Baby Delivered Aboard Air France Flight
Ryan Boyd

On December 17, a baby was delivered aboard an Air France flight from India to the United States by 27-year-old doctor Sij Hemal after flight attendants frantically inquired about any doctors that may be on board.

“I was relaxed because I knew I was in safe hands,” said new mother Toyin Ogundipe. “They did everything a doctor or midwife would have done if I was in the labor room in the hospital. Even better, if you ask me.”

    “On December 17, a baby was delivered aboard an Air France flight from India to the United States…”

    Did not know that AF had direct A388 flights from India to the US

    Interesting. When did Air France begin flying from India to the United States? The media is so unreliable and do not get the facts correct.

    Actually, CNN got it right. The CNN story is clear that the baby was born on a flight from Paris to JFK.

    “[The doctor who delivered the baby] started in New Delhi, stopped in Paris and was now headed to New York…”
