Gusnawati was on board a Saudi Airline aircraft en route to her home country when she suddenly went into labor mid-flight.

The aircraft was then forced to make an emergency landing at Muscat International Airport wherein Gusnawati gave birth on the floor of the plane galley.

Gusnawati said that she left for Morocco wherein she works as a domestic helper last June, not knowing she was already pregnant at that time.

She left Morocco on Friday, October 5, and said that she is excited to go home to Indonesia to see her husband and show him their newborn baby.

Gusnawati and her child are now safe and comfortable state. The Indonesian mother also thanked all of those who helped her deliver her child.
