Dumped in a plane toilet bin: The newborn boy

Dumped in a plane toilet bin: The newborn boy rescued from Gulf Air jet by cleaners

Airport cleaners tidying up an aircraft that had landed in Manila were shocked to find a new-born baby boy in a toilet's rubbish bin today.

A search has now begun for the mother, who investigators are convinced gave birth in the toilet as the Gulf Air jet flew to the Philippines from Saudi Arabia.

'She appears to have left the aircraft as soon as possible after the plane landed,' said a police officer.

The clean-up team which boarded the plane found the baby as a new flight crew were making plans to fly the plane back to Bahrain.

Doctors at the international airport rushed to the plane and began checking the new-born baby and decided that he was in good health.

Airport photographs saw the baby, wrapped in a towel while doctors warmed in him up under a light bulb.

Officials at the airport said they had named the child George Francis - based on Gulf Air's airline code, GF - as efforts began to find the mother.

'As soon as Gulf Air Flight 154 landed she hurried from the aircraft and left the terminal building,' said an official.

'We haven't been able to determine the nationality of the child at this stage - whether her mother or parents are from Saudi Arabia or the Philippines.'

Authorities said they were baffled as to how the woman had managed to conceal the in-flight birth from other passengers and return to her seat without drawing attention to herself.

Officials said they were also surprised that no-one else who had used the toilet noticed anything unusual.

'The good news is that the baby is healthy and weighs around 6lb 6oz,' said Dr Maria Teresa Agores, who was on duty in Terminal 1 when the baby was brought to her.

Airline staff contributed to buy clothes and other essentials for the baby boy.

In July this year an Indian woman who gave birth to a baby in a plane's toilet tried to flush it down the toilet bowl.

The child was rushed to hospital in a critical condition.

Indian woman delivers, abandons baby in plane toilet

July 08, 2010|By Harmeet Shah Singh, CNN

An unmarried Indian woman delivered a baby in the toilet of an international flight and abandoned the infant in the plane's washroom, police and doctors said Thursday.

Cabin crew of the Turkmenistan Airlines rushed the newborn to a hospital as the plane arrived in the northern Indian city of Amritsar on Wednesday, said Varinder Kumar, city police commissioner.

H.P. Singh, a doctor at Amritsar's Fortis Escorts hospital, said the baby's condition was critical. The infant might take at least two to three days to recover, he added.The mother admitted to the same hospital was, however, stable, he said.

"She was unmarried. It looks like she wanted to get rid of the baby," Singh said.

Police confirmed she was single and plan to question her once she was declared medically fit.

Abandoning newborns is an offense punishable up to seven years in jail, Kumar said.

"We will see what action can be taken (against her) after the interrogation," he said.

The mother, believed to be age 25, belongs to Punjab's Hoshiarpur district, according to police. Her flight had originated from Ashgabat in Turkmenistan, Kumar said.

In largely-conservative India, pre-marital sex remains a taboo.

Last year, India's federal woman rights watchdog ordered an investigation into reports young would-be-brides were subject to "virginity tests" for a mass wedding.

The alleged tests in June last year happened in Madhya Pradesh state controlled by conservative Hindu nationalists who are members of the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party.

But a district magistrate said they were simply "clinical examinations" initiated after one of the brides gave birth at a previous similar event.

Earlier this year, India's top court ruled live-in relationships between adult couples are not a crime.

The supreme court also quashed more than 20 cases against a south Indian actress for her comments on pre-marital sex in 2005, which had sparked angry protests.

Actress Khushboo, who uses one name, said her remarks aimed to highlight precautions that partners should take in order to prevent AIDS.

More than half of India's billion-plus population is below age 25, officials say.

With rapid modernization and a growing economy, the country's young work force has grown over the past few years.

But marriages remain a venerated custom in India.
