Flight 9W 569 of Jet Airways had taken off from Damman for Kochi around 2.55 a.m. on Sunday.


When an expectant mother was travelling on board the flight went into premature labour. It was then that the crew members declared a medical emergency and diverted the flight to Mumbai.


When the Boeing 737 flight was looming over the Arabian Sea with 162 passengers, the cabin crew requested over the public announcement system for a doctor to come forward. However, the flight contained just a female nurse who was travelling to Kerala, named Wilson.


She volunteered to assist in delivering the child along with the airline staff.


After the plane landed in Mumbai, both the mother and child were rushed to a hospital. At present, they both are doing well, as per a statement of the airline. Being the first baby to be born in-flight for Jet, the airline is happy to provide a lifetime pass to the newly-born for all his travels on Jet Airways, said Jet in a statement.


Later, the plane resumed its journey to Kochi.


It was able to reach its destination around 12.45 p.m. after a delay of nearly 90 minutes.
