Afghan refugee gives birth on US evacuation plane – The Guardian

An Afghan woman gave birth on board a US evacuation plane on Saturday, moments after landing at Ramstein airbase in Germany, the US air force said.

The woman gave birth to a baby girl in the cargo bay of a C-17 aircraft after going into labour and experiencing complications during the flight, US Air Mobility Command said on Twitter. “The aircraft commander decided to descend in altitude to increase air pressure in the aircraft, which helped stabilise and save the mother’s life,” the tweet said.

The woman was part of a group fleeing the Taliban in Afghanistan, and was on the second stage of an evacuation flight that had taken off from a base in the Middle East.

The mother and baby were transported to hospital and were said to be in a good condition.
