A two-month-old baby died during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Perth, according to a passenger who witnessed the medical emergency.

The infant was travelling with her parents, from Saudi Arabia, but died in the arms of Nadia Parenzee while on AirAsia flight D736.

Flying home from Malaysia this morning I encountered the most confronting situation one could possibly go through, Ms Parenzee wrote on Facebook.

I had a newborn baby take her last dying breath in my arms.

She said the baby had been restless and crying before take off, and that an air hostess had asked her to hold the baby to give her parents a break.

I offered the parents and the staff some assistance as I could see that the new parents were stressed, she said online.

As I closed my eyes to catch some sleep the AirAsia hostess tapped me on the shoulder to help her.

The parents offered the baby to me with desperation in their eyes I took her in my arms and immediately read Surah Fatiha.

Then baby Farah took her last breath and went limp. I immediately knew something was horribly wrong and shouted out to the passengers to see if there were any doctors on board.
