A one-year-old Indian toddler died on board a Gulf Air flight that was on its way from Kochi to Bahrain's capital Manama, forcing the aircraft to make an emergency landing at Abu Dhabi International Airport, media reported on Tuesday.

The child suddenly became sick almost halfway to Manama from Kochi on Monday morning and died on board, the Khaleej Times reported.

"As the aircraft landed at Abu Dhabi International Airport, we immediately shifted the body to Shaikh Khalifa (Medical City) hospital morgue," an airline source was quoted as saying. The source said the airline staff offloaded the luggage of the mother and child at Abu Dhabi airport and the plane left for Manama after a delay of one-and-a-half hours.

"We made all arrangements for shifting the body to the hospital morgue and took care of the mother in this time of grief," he said.
