Baby Named After Flight Attendant

YEREVAN — A passenger who gave birth on a plane travelling to Armenia has named her daughter after the flight attendant who helped deliver her.
The flight had been heading from Novosibrisk in Siberia on Saturday. The birth on the plane took place two hours before the Armavia airliner was scheduled to land in Yerevan.
The woman has reportedly named her daughter Hasmik, after the flight attendant who helped deliver her, Hasmik Ghevondyan.
Gevondyan said Armina Babayan, 31, was showing all the signs of an imminent birth and the plane was too far out and too high up to make an emergency landing.
Gevondyan rallied her colleagues together and — ready or not — a passenger was having a baby aboard the flight.
“Even our male colleague, Grigor, did his part, bringing water and napkins,” Gevondyan told The Associated Press.
Both mother and baby are said to be doing well.
