The passenger started experiencing labor pains an hour into the nearly three-hour flight, and a cabin announcement was made asking for medical assistance.
Thankfully, per reports and fellow passengers on Twitter, a doctor on the flight immediately sprung into action, and flight attendants “acted fast to set up a mini-hospital of sorts within minutes.”
Following the baby’s cries, the plane reportedly broke out into applause.
