Nigerian Banker Gave Birth Inside Plane En route New York, Check Out The Lovely Baby Toyin Ogundipe
A 41-year-old Nigerian banker identified as Toyin Ogundipe, gave birth inside a plane en route New York. She gave birth to a baby boy mid-air about 35,000 feet above sea level and four hours away from the her destination. The mother of two who lives in the UK, was helped by a passenger, Dr. Sij Hemal, 27. He helped her give birth on December, 17, 2017. The baby was then named Jake after a 30-minute labour.
Hemal a second-year urology resident at Cleveland Clinic’s Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute, 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.”
When asked what his biggest fear was, Hemal said his biggest fear was that the mother could die from bleeding or shock after birth.
He had recommended to the pilot that they continue to JFK International Airport, still four hours away, since an emergency landing would require a two-hour diversion to a U.S. military base in the Azores Islands.
