    Baby saved by Tel Aviv-Brussels flight crew


    A three-month-old baby was saved by the intervention of a Jetairfly crew between Tel Aviv and Brussels. The pilot diverted flight JAF 2660 to Rhodes where the baby was taken to hospital.

    “The child had stopped breathing,” explains Jetairfly’s Hans Vanhaelemeesch. The baby had boarded a flight from Israel to Brussels with his mother, grandmother and younger brother. “The crew gave the baby artificial respiration then oxygen,” adds a company spokesperson. “The pilot then made an emergency landing at Rhodes airport (Greece) on medical grounds. An ambulance was waiting on the landing strip to take charge of the baby who had started breathing again. He was taken to hospital for further care.”

    Flight JAF 2660 landed in Brussels three hours late.
