Passenger has baby on flight, attendant helps with delivery
YEREVAN, Armenia – A passenger has given birth aboard a plane flying over Armenia and named her daughter after one of the flight attendants who helped with the delivery, The Associated press reported.
The birth occurred on Saturday, two hours before the Armavia airline flight landed in Yerevan, after a long flight from Siberia.
Flight attendant Asmik Gevondyan told the Associated press she noticed that 31-year-old passenger Armina Babayan appeared to be in labor and organized the delivery conducted by her and her colleagues.
“All of our crew helped to deliver the baby,” Gevondyan told The Associated Press.
Babayan, who had claimed to be 6-and-a-half-months pregnant during check-in, named her first child Asmik, local television reported.
