A Ukrainian baby has successfully been transferred to an Irish hospital by neonatal air ambulance.

The Irish Air Corps and the Neonatal Transport Programme completed the air ambulance flight on Saturday night from Lublin, Poland to Baldonnel in west Dublin.

Members of the HSE’s Neonatal Transport Team were also onboard, while the young patient was accompanied by his mother and four siblings on the long-distance journey before being taken to Crumlin Hospital.

The Air Corps shared a series of photos of the boy’s retrieval from Poland online, adding that he “will now receive ongoing medical treatment and support services in Ireland.”

“Last night 101Sqn & @transport_neo completed a Neonatal air ambulance from Lublin Poland to Baldonnel.

"The young Ukrainian passenger was also accompanied by his mother & four siblings and they will now receive ongoing medical treatment and support services in Ireland,” a spokesperson said.
