Nigerian Woman Gives Birth Aboard Plane On Spanish Island

A plane flying from Nigeria to London had to make an emergency landing on a Spanish island when a woman gave birth in business class.

Ujunwa Eneh Ozeh, who turned 31 today, went into labour at 36,000 feet while flying from her home town of Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, to London Heathrow, despite only being 26 weeks pregnant.

The pilot of the British Airways flight was forced to make an emergency landing in Palme de Mallorce, in the Balearic Islands, where the mother and baby, who has been called Michael, were rushed to the island’s Son Espases hospital.
