Yesterday, a friend of mine who works as a purser (chief flight attendant) helped a lady with delivering her baby during a flight to Manila, Philippines while over the ocean :)
I know that pregnant ladies after their 7th month (in this particular airlines) are not allowed to travel by air but she somehow managed to be on-board (it is her responsibility to declare that). Anyway the baby was delivered in a professional way as if he was delivered in a hospital and he is fine and healthy :)
My question: What will be the place of birth for the baby? The origin country or destination country of the flight? Or somewhere else? Are there any related rules regarding this delivery?
This is a real photo of my friend and the baby he helped deliver
BTW, I have permission from the photograph owner to show it here.
I can't believe it, my friend helped in delivering another baby in another flight :) Again the baby and the mom are healthy and happy :) Respects to my expert friend.
