MAS makes emergency landing with woman in labour

egtmedia59A Malaysia Airlines flight bound for Brisbane made an emergency landing in Bali just before the weekend after an Australian passenger went into premature labour.

Flight MH135 from Kuala Lumpur to Brisbane requested a priority landing because the pregnant woman was “about to give birth”.

Airport managers in Bali said the plane with 178 passengers aboard landed at 2.10pm (local time) and the woman was immediately rushed to Kasih Ibu Hospital.

MH135 departed for Brisbane two hours later.

MAS rules recommend that pregnant women not fly internationally after the 35th week of pregnancy (39 weeks is generally classified as full-term). In this case, however, the woman went into labour prematurely, at only 24 weeks.

Sadly, the baby did not survive and was deceased by the time the mother arrived at hospital, medical authorities on Bali said.
