Woman gives birth on U.S. flight evacuated from Afghanistan

Ramstein, Germany-The US military said an Afghan woman gave birth on an Air Force C-17 plane flying from the Middle East to Ramstein Air Base in Germany.

The base was used as a transit point for people evacuated from Afghanistan.

The Military Air Mobility Command said on Twitter that the mother began to experience complications during Saturday’s flight.

It said: “The captain decided to lower the altitude to increase the air pressure inside the aircraft, which helped stabilize and saved the mother’s life.”

After arriving in Ramstein, American medical staff boarded the plane and sent the child to the cargo hold of the plane.

The military said: “The baby girl and mother were sent to a nearby medical institution in good condition.”
