An Air Force Super Puma helicopter flew a prematurely born boy, an hour old, from the southeastern Aegean island of Rhodes to Iraklio, on Crete, on Thursday.

The helicopter landed on premises of Iraklio's general regional university hospital, due to the urgency of the case, at 17:39.

The baby's airlift took place following a request by the Greek Emergency Centre (EKAV).
