Cabin crew tried to take the Nigerian citizen to a more secluded part of the aircraft and asked over the loudspeaker if there was a doctor on board.

Luckily a doctor stepped up and along with the air hosts and hostesses, helped deliver the tot at 33,000ft.

Cabin crew cut the newborn’s umbilical cord and the pilot diverted the plane to Vienna International Airport in Austria.
