Nigerian Banker Gives Birth Inside a Plane

A 41-year-old Nigerian banker identified as Toyin Ogundipe, aboard an Air France flight, was delivered of a baby boy mid-air about 35,000 feet above sea level and four hours away from the destination.

The mother of two who lives in the UK  had gone into labour a week earlier than her delivery date, and was in childbirth pains and having contractions about 10 minutes apart.


The baby, who was named Jake, was delivered after a 30-minute labour, Mailonline states.

A second-year urology resident, Dr. Sij Hemal, who was also a passenger in the plane, helped with the delivery of the baby half-way through an eight-hour flight from Paris to New York.


Dr. Hemal, who spoke to Mailonline, said he was just glad everything went smoothly — and was relieved it all happened before he’d had any champagne.

He said, “We’re trained to stay calm and think clearly in emergency situations. I just tried to think ahead to what might go wrong and come up with a creative solution.”
