A two-month-old baby girl has died on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Perth over the weekend local media in Australia are reporting.

The incident happened on an Air Asia aircraft when the aircraft was around two and a half hours from Perth and was recounted on social media by a former nurse who happened to be travelling on the same flight.  

Nadia Parenzee, the former nurse, offered to assist the parents shortly after boarding the flight as the baby girl was crying and agitated and Parenzee could see the new parents were stressed.

Later, during the flight, the cabin crew came to wake Parenzee as help was needed, "The parents offered the baby to me with desperation in their eyes," Parenzee shared on social media, "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 onboard."

Parenzee then told of the fraught situation on the aircraft over the next two hours with resuscitation attempts continuing right up until they landed at Perth airport. A spokesperson for the airline advised that as is normal procedure for a medical emergency, the aircraft was met upon arrival by police and a medical team "The safety and wellbeing of our guests is always our number one priority, and in accordance with procedure, the flight crew requested medical assistance on landing.  Our thoughts are with the infant and family involved."

The death of the baby, understood to be from Saudi Arabia is not thought to be suspicious and the local police are preparing a report from the coroner's office.
