Woman Gives Birth On Airplane

Woman's Birth Plan Had Wings


Baby on board! A New Jersey couple flying from the Philippines to New York welcomed an unexpected delivery during their Korean Air flight — a baby boy! Born at 37,000 feet in the air and a lil more than two months early, Jadan Brown earned his wings. Weighing in at less than three pounds, the premature infant arrived above Northern Canada about half way into his parent's flight home.

Proud parents Larry and Jacel Brown didn't have time to panic. Their bundle of joy was delivered in the kitchen area by his daddy, a trained emergency medical worker and another passenger, a surgeon. A CBS report said:

"At the time we didn't know that the baby was actually coming out - she had to walk from business class into the kitchen area and kneel down to allow us to remove her clothes. At that time, when I was able to remove her clothes, the baby was actually on his way out," Larry Brown told The Early Show.

The newborn was taken to a hospital in New York when the plane landed and is said to be doing well. Jacel had been cleared to fly by her doctor.

Would you have flown this late in pregnancy?
