A two-year-old child had a miraculous recovery after she fell unconscious on a Vistara flight yesterday.
Five doctors of the All India Institute Of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), who were also travelling on the same flight, saved the child’s life after she stopped breathing – shortly after it took off from Bengaluru for Delhi.
They examined the child and immediately started her treatment after the crew made an emergency announcement.

It was a 2-year-old cyanotic female child who was operated outside for intracardiac repair,” said AIIMS’ official handle on X – formerly known as Twitter.
