Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Ouagadougou - A Turkish Airlines flight landed with one more passenger than it took off with after a baby was born mid-air with the help of the airline's crew.

The airline tells NBC News a woman who was 28 weeks pregnant complained of birthing pains during the flight over West Africa from Conakry in Guinea to Burkina Faso's capital city of Ouagadougou.

The airline says its cabin crew rushed to help deliver a baby girl named Kadiju.

The airline put up pictures on social media on Friday showing the crew smiling for photos with the baby and the mom, who was lying across a row of three seats.

The pair was taken to a hospital once the plane landed and the airline says both are doing well.
