An Emergency Landing Saves The Life Of 2 Years Old Girl

A 2-year-old baby girl, who stopped breathing mid-flight, was saved by doctors following an emergency landing. The incident occurred on a Vistara Airline flight UK 814 en route to Delhi. A distress call was announced on the flight, and five doctors onboard, who were returning from the Indian Society for Vascular and Interventional Radiology (ISVIR), saved the life of the baby girl. Due to a medical emergency, the flight was diverted to Nagpur, where the child was handed over to a pediatrician in a stable hemodynamic condition.


The incident was confirmed by AIIMS Delhi, which took to its official X (formerly Twitter) handle and shared the images of the baby and others. “It was a 2-year-old cyanotic female child who was operated outside for intracardiac repair, was unconscious and cyanosed,” AIIMS Delhi wrote on X. Further, AIIMS said the child’s pulse was found absent while he was being examined and his extremities were also cold. The child was not breathing and had cyanosed lips and fingers.


The doctors successfully placed an IV canulla, put an oropharyngeal airway, and initiated an emergency response by the whole team of residents onboard. The baby was brought to ROSC (return of circulation). It was complicated by another cardiac arrest for which an AED (automated external defibrillator) was used. For 45 minutes, the baby was resuscitated and the flight was routed to Nagpur. On reaching Nagpur, the child was handed over in stable hemodynamic condition to the pediatrician.
