WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AFP) – A woman who gave birth in mid-air left the baby behind when she disembarked in Auckland, Television New Zealand reported Thursday.
Police and Pacific Blue -- the airline which operated the flight from the Samoan capital Apia -- were saying little about their investigation Thursday, but mother and child were said to be recovering in hospital.Television New Zealand reported that the Samoan woman gave birth in one of the aircraft's toilets during the flight to Auckland early Thursday. The infant was found by an airline worker in the toilet rubbish bin more than an hour after the plane landed. There was no suggestion any of the 150 passengers or crew were aware that the woman, reportedly aged 30, had borne a child in mid-air. But the television station said authorities discovered something was wrong after she approached them saying she had misplaced her passport.
