A four-month-old baby girl has died on board a Cathay Pacific Airways flight from London to Hong Kong.

The child, who was said to have been suffering from a gastrointestinal disease when the family boarded the plane at Heathrow Airport on Sunday, fell unconscious during the flight.

Her parents, who were planning to visit relatives in China, alerted cabin crew before another passenger - a nurse - immediately started giving first aid to the baby, Apple Daily reported.

The pilot decided to make an emergency landing at Almaty Airport in Kazakhstan where the baby was seen by paramedics, but there was nothing that could be done to save her and she was pronounced dead.

Her mother, reportedly a 36-year-old Chinese-French national, and father, believed to be from France, decided to continue the journey on flight CX256 to Hong Kong with their dead baby.

Passengers told the news website that they were 'emotionally distraught throughout the rest of the flight'.

They had been planning to transfer flight to Changsha in China's Hunan province after landing in Hong Kong, it was reported.

Officials confirmed the baby's death was not being treated as suspicious but a post-mortem examination is yet to take place.

A doctor told Apple Daily that parents should refrain from taking sick babies onto planes as a 'lack of medical support could lead to very dangerous situations on board'.
