Nigerian Woman Gives Birth On Mediterranean Sea

A Nigerian woman has delivered a baby boy on board a rescue ship in the Mediterranean after being plucked from an overcrowded migrant rubber dinghy.




BBC quoted Medical charity Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) as saying that the baby’s parents, Otas and Faith Osunbor, had named him Newman Otas.
They had been making the hazardous crossing to Italy with their two other children, aged seven and five, and were rescued just 24 hours before the baby was born.

An MSF midwife on board the ship MV Aquarius, Jonquil Nicholl described the birth as “normal… in dangerously abnormal conditions”.
Mrs Osunbor said she had been “very stressed” on the rubber boat and had been having contractions for three days.

Nicholl, who delivered the baby, said: “I am filled with horror at the thought of what would have happened if this baby had arrived 24 hours earlier in that unseaworthy rubber boat, with fuel on the bottom where the women sit, crammed in with no space to move, at the mercy of the sea.‎
“And 48 hours previously they were waiting on a beach in Libya not knowing what was ahead of them.”

“Just over an hour ago a baby boy was born on board the Aquarius. Mum, baby, dad and 2 big brothers are all well,” she said.
“The gorgeous little guy was born in international waters; so, his nationality is still under discussion”, she added.


Ms White told the BBC that such events were rare on rescue ships, although another baby was born on the Aquarius in May to a woman from Cameroon.

These are the ones giving us bad names around the world. Heavily pregnant and going to dump your problems on other tax payers abroad. Wicked mother! If you had died, would we have heard of it? Lazy idiot! These foreign govts should first jail such people before sending them back to where ever they crawled out from.

I don't even understand how anyone would take such risk, not to talk of a pregnant woman with minors who by now will be stressed from the very awkward and dangerous journey. It's just unfair on the poor kids abeg.
