Crew members helped deliver the baby girl, named Kadiju, after Diaby laid across a row of seats.
“Welcome on board Princess!” Turkish Airlines wrote on Twitter along with photos of the newborn. “Applause goes to our cabin crew!”
“The lady was in great pain,” flight attendant Bouthayna Inanir told the Hurriyet Daily News. “And then the baby was on the seat. This was the hardest part. I had to grab the baby. I took her and gave her to the mother.”
