American Greatness: A Child Is Born

An Afghan woman gave birth Saturday on a U.S. evacuation plane in Germany.


The American Air Mobility Command’s official Twitter account posted an account of what happened along with photos of the aftermath.


The unnamed woman, part of a group fleeing the Taliban in Afghanistan, went into labor during a flight from a base in the Middle East and began to have complications, according to the U.S. Air Force command.

  • “The aircraft commander decided to descend in altitude to increase air pressure in the aircraft, which helped stabilize and save the mother’s life,” the command said on Twitter. “Upon landing [at Ramstein Air Base], Airmen from the 86th MDG came aboard and delivered the child in the cargo bay of the aircraft.”
  • The mother and baby girl are said to be in good health.
