Mother Reunited With Child, But May Face Abandonment
A woman aboard a Pacific Blue flight from Samoa to New Zealand
last week reportedly gave birth in the plane's bathroom - and
proceeded to deplane upon arrival, abandoning the baby in the
bathroom's waste bin.
The Associated Press said the 30-year-old woman was tentatively
identified as a Samoan national. Getting off the plane at Auckland
International Airport without the flight attendants realizing she
had given birth, the woman's bloodied clothing was noticed as she
passed through Immigration.
New Zealand police were investigating the "alleged abandonment
of the child by the mother," but were tight-lipped regarding other
details. Police spokeswoman Ana-Mari Gates-Bowey said, "A
likelihood of this investigation is a criminal prosecution."
Immigration spokesman Rowan Saker said officials are
investigating the information the woman provided on her visa
application, and why she was allowed to board the flight at such an
advanced stage of pregnancy.
The woman was taken to Auckland's Middlemore Hospital for
surgery and was later reunited with her baby. A statement released
by Pacific Blue read, "We are relieved to have been informed that
both mother and child are reunited, are well and are now being
looked after in hospital."
