Plane returns to save infantís life

New Delhi, September 12
An Indian Airlines flight on its way to Bangalore returned to Delhi this morning to save the life of a two-and-a-half-month-old baby in the plane, faced with a serious breathing problem.

On being informed that the baby Mohanmmed Hassan was facing problems in breathing, Captain MPS Gill who was commanding the plane returned to Delhi and landed aircraft at the IGI airport at 8.06 am, airport sources said.

No passenger objected to the pilot's decision to return to Delhi. Infact, they supported the pilot's action in saving the life of the infant, the sources said.

The baby was accompanied by his father Abdul Jabbar and mother Firoza Jabbar. On landing, an ambulance of the Airport Authority of India rushed the baby to AIIMS where he was immediately admitted.

A similar incident had occurred on July 29 when another Dehli-Bangalore flight of the Indian Airlines was diverted to Hyderabad to save the life of an infant. ó PTI
