Woman Gives Birth During Flight From Africa To The U.S.

This birth story definitely reaches new heights.

Over the weekend, a woman went into labor on a United Airlines Flight that had departed the West African nation of Ghana headed to Washington Dulles International Airport.

About six hours into the 11-hour flight, the woman started having contractions.

Luckily, a doctor, nurse, and former nurse were all on board and able to help.

Fellow passengers said the plane also hit turbulence several times while the woman was in labor.

After about 2 1/2 hours, she gave birth to a baby boy on the floor in an emergency exit row.

Mom and baby are both reported to be doing very well.
