A newborn baby boy was born before a special flight of Biman Bangladesh taking off from Muscat, Oman.

It is learned that a special flight from Muscat, Oman was preparing to arrive in Dhaka. The flight was slowly approaching the runway from the boarding bridge at Muscat airport. The cabin crew is counting the heads of the passengers just before flying in the sky.

They were knocking on the toilet without seeing a woman – as no one is allowed to get up from the seat or go to the toilet just before takeoff while the plane is on the runway.

To find the woman – the cabin crew knocked on the toilet for a long time. Suddenly, the sound of the newborn crying heard from inside. At one point, the woman opened the door with a baby boy in her lap. The woman made a ‘self-delivery’ inside the toilet.

The cabin crew then rushed for first aid. They immediately informed the captain about the child's delivery. Later, there was a flood of joy throughout the whole flight. Upon hearing the news, the captain took the plane to the boarding bridge. 

One of the passengers on the flight said that many expatriates from Muscat, Oman could not return to the country due to the epidemic. With great difficulty, he collected a ticket of Biman for a special flight to Bangladesh.  

“No one on the flight was very happy although getting the tickets. There were worries about returning. However, everyone was very happy to hear the cry of the newborn,” he added.

Sources at Muscat airport said the woman was with her family on the flight. She was 8 months pregnant. When she suddenly felt her water broke, she immediately went to the toilet and delivered a baby boy herself. 

When the crew of Biman Bangladesh informed about this, a medical team was sent there. The team later took them to the hospital in Muscat Currently, the mother and child are healthy

Meanwhile, a video of the newborn inside Biman Bangladesh went viral on social media. The aircraft crew is also very happy there.

In the video, one of them said, “Alhamdulillah, a little baby was born in an aircraft of Biman Bangladesh a while ago. For the time being, the cabin crew is keeping her under constant supervision. We are lucky, this child is a blessing for the flight.”
