Passenger Gives Birth Aboard Armavia Flight
Names baby after flight attendant
YEREVAN (Associated Press)—A passenger gave birth aboard a plane flying to Armenia and named her daughter after one of the flight attendants who helped with the delivery.
The birth of the healthy baby occurred Saturday, two hours before the Armavia airline flight landed in Yerevan after a long flight from Siberia.
Flight attendant Hasmik Gevondyan said she noticed that 31-year-old passenger Armine Babayan appeared to be in labor and organized the delivery.
“All of our crew helped to deliver the baby,” Gevondyan told The Associated Press.
Babayan, who had claimed to be 6 ½ months pregnant during check-in, named her first child Asmik, local television reported.
