Hyderabad: Baby dies onboard Qatar Airways flight

A 11 month child master Arnav Varma Alluri died with breathing problem in Shamshabad Airport on the early hours on Wednesday. Alluri Anil Varma along with his wife and child came from US via Doha and reached Shamshabad Airport in the early morning hour.

When they came out of the flight the child got breathing problem at 2:29am due to which master Arnav died on the spot. The parents with the help of emergency security personnel took the child to the Apollo hospital. After observing and providing emergency treatment doctors declared the child as dead.

A senior doctor, on condition of anonymity, explained, “Breathing problems can develop in infants if they have consumed something which can’t be digested by them, like a peanut, which could have led to the breathing trouble. Sudden death syndrome is noticed in infants, but there could be multiple reasons like an underlying disease or an inborn metabolic error, which was not detected at birth. It would be difficult to say, till the post-mortem is carried out.”

Incidentally, no police case has been registered at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport police station. The police stated that it was a case of natural death. The child was brought dead to the Apollo Medical Centre at the airport.

The airline in a statement said, “A child passed away at the Hyderabad International Airport this morning and our heartfelt sympathy and thoughts are with the affected family.”

Alluri Anil Varma family has the US citizenship and came with joy to spend time happily with his family members at Moulali Rajajinagar. With the sad incident the parents bursted to emotion when they found that their child is no more.
