A baby girl was born last Thursday (Oct 8) on board a China Airlines flight from Taipei to Los Angeles, after her Taiwanese mother unexpectedly went into labour.
The woman, whom the carrier said was not yet 32 weeks pregnant, informed the crew six hours into the 19-hour flight that her water had broken.

According to the China Post, the pilot immediately diverted to Alaska’s Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport but the woman, who was alone, gave birth 30 minutes before the plane landed.

A doctor who happened to be on board helped to deliver the baby.
