Baby delivered mid-flight gets free trips for 21 years

Penton was 36 weeks pregnant when she boarded the plane, so she wasn't expecting to deliver so soon, but her baby had other ideas.

When an expectant mother went into labour on a Spirit Airlines flight, an emergency landing was not quick enough.

The situation may have been nerve-wracking, but the story ended happily: the baby weighed in at 7 pounds and was 19.5 inches tall, had a "good color" and was overall "absolutely perfect" at birth with no medical problems, Penton said.

There was nothing she could do but notify a flight attendant, who contacted doctors on the ground - and asked passengers whether there were any medical personnel on board. The plane was only in the air for around 15 minutes when she felt her contractions coming more often, and she eventually went into labor.

"Everything started happening very quickly", said Penton. "Soon after that, it was clear I was having my baby, and I was in pure panic".

Ms Penton said she had carried two other babies full term and the thought of an early delivery never crossed her mind.

In addition to the free airfare, Spirit paid for a rental vehicle to drive Penton and her family back home and presented baby Christoph with several gifts, including a onesie that says "Born to fly". "Like, we barely caught him and then we just gave him to her". "He is absolutely flawless", Penton said.

'He did what he wanted, ' Cristina said.

A passenger named Shelley Hedgecock Starks shot the video of the happy event.

With her daughter Lulu lovingly holding her hand, it took just ten minutes and a few pushes for Christoph to be born. Doctors recommended the baby not fly on a plane until his immune system is stronger.

The airlines announced that the child, the first baby to be born in flight for Jet Airways, would get a free lifetime pass for any travel on the carrier.

Mother and baby were transported to Ochsner Medical Center in Kenner, where both are reported to be happy and healthy. "They helped make what could have been a bad situation as good as it could possibly be". "But then again, stubborn, so I figured, no, no, we can handle this".
