Qatar Airways made an emergency landing at an airport in Pakistan’s southern port city Karachi, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of Pakistan said on Tuesday.

The CAA said in a statement that the landing was carried out late Monday night at Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport after a Filipino pregnant woman suffered pain during the flight.

The woman was given first aid on the flight, the CAA said, adding that a doctor and an ambulance were present when the plane landed, while the child was born by that time.

The woman and her child were shifted to a local hospital, and the flight departed in a couple of hours on early Tuesday morning, the statement said.

The flight was going from Doha to Manila, according to the CAA. ■
