Megha, who was expecting a child when her husband co-pilot Akhilesh Sharma was killed in the Kozhikode plane crash last month, gave birth to a boy at a hospital here, bringing some happiness to the family.

On August 7, an Air India Express flight from Dubai with 190 people on board overshot the table-top runway at the Kozhikode airport and fell into a valley 35 feet below and broke into two portions.

The final death toll of the crash was 21 and it included pilot Deepak Sathe and co-pilot 32-year-old Sharma.

“For us, the arrival of the baby has rekindled happiness and joy in our life,” Megha, who gave birth on Saturday, said.

This has come as a solace for the family since the tragedy, the co-pilot’s father Tulsi Ram Sharma said.
