An Air India flight bound for Mumbai from Lucknow (India) diverted to Ahmedabad when a baby on board the plane started having seizures.
“The infant started having seizures soon after the flight took off from Lucknow. As the nearest airport was Ahmedabad, the flight crew informed air traffic control of the medical emergency. We had a 108 ambulance stationed at the runway before the flight landed,” said an Ahmedabad airport official.
The flight landed at city airport at 3.30 pm after which fifteen-month old Ansh Dutta was rushed to Apollo Hospitals. Doctors said that Dutta, who was traveling with his parents, is out of danger but will be under observation for two days.
The flight was able to resume its trip to Mumbai a short time later.
