Chinese Woman Who Delivered Baby Enroute US Deported Without Her Child

The heartwarming story of a woman who gave birth on a U.S. bound flight has since soured after she was deported back to Taiwan without her child and warned she could face a fine of more than $30,000.

Earlier this month amazing footage emerged of the mother, known only by her surname Jian, giving birth to a ‘premature’ child at 30,000ft, six hours into a 19 hour journey from Bali to Los Angeles on a China Airline flight.

Jian claimed upon boarding to be 32 weeks pregnant, the latest date expectant mothers are still free to fly without a fit-to-travel certificate from a doctor under Taiwanese aviation regulations. But she reportedly gave birth at 36 weeks.

According to China.com.cn, the mother refused to lay flat to give birth and kept asking ‘are we in America yet?’ Eventually she gave birth above Alaska 30 minutes before the airplane conducted an emergency landing into the state’s Anchorage Airport.

There is speculation that Jian, who was deported back to Taiwan without without her daughter on Saturday, could have planned to give birth in the United States and  could now be liable for the costs of the diversion if she is found to have purposely attempted to give birth to the child in the U.S.

Jian was separated from her child on Saturday after the 13-day-old child was awarded U.S. citizenship, a news site claims.
