A pregnant Afghan woman gave birth to a baby girl inside a US military plane after fleeing Afghanistan. During a flight from a base in the Middle East to Germany, the mother went into labor and began to have complications.
The pilot decided to fly lower to increase the air pressure in the aircraft. The maneuver worked and helped to stabilize the mother’s health status.

After landing, the military assisted the woman in labor and the baby was born in the cargo area of the plane. The girl and her mother were taken to a medical unit in the city and are doing well. Information is from the US Air Force.

With the Taliban coming to power in Afghanistan, stories like this have become routine in the country. The scenes of women trying to deliver their young children to save them as a crowd squeezed in to try to flee the country because of the Taliban’s takeover moved and worried many people (see below). Some children were even injured by the fence wires.
Farista Rahmani, Hadiya’s mother, lost her husband, Ali Musa Rahmani, and was afraid that her daughter would be injured or fall and be trampled underfoot in the melee. That’s why he decided to hand the baby over to soldiers, according to Reuters.
