Girl born on plane given free flights
Monday 22 February 2010
A baby girl born on a military-run airliner in Bolivia will be baptized on the plane as well — with the chief of the air force presiding as godfather.
Tami Fabiola was born on Feb. 14 on a Transportes Aereos Militares plane at an altitude of 24,000 feet (7,315 meters). A doctor and a nurse who were passengers on the flight helped out.
Tami was named after the airline, which is known as TAM.
Tami's mother is 30-year-old Lourdes Mamani. In a news release issued by the air force Sunday, Mamani said she decided to hold the baptism aboard the plane "to make this occasion memorable." The ceremony will take place Monday at a military airport.
TAM is giving Tami free flights until she turns 21. She'll also get a scholarship through high school.
