Baby born at 30,000 feet

Hopefully the baby will get free flights for life … /?GT=43001

They should bill the mother for diversion and cleaning costs. … /KMDW/KSLC … /KMDW/KDEN

According to the flight track it appears the baby was born closer to 38,000 than 30,000 feet.

wonder how it would show on the birth certificate as place of birth??

Boeing 737? That’s a cool story… In some ways…

My fiance said " what the F was that lady doing flying?"

Cabin crew announced on the PA, that they just “boarded” a new passenger. The airplane landed safely about 20 minutes later, mother and boy were taken to a local hospital and are doing fine.

The airplane reached Salt Lake City with a delay of 90 minutes. … /KMDW/KSLC
