Baby born mid-air on Spirit Airlines flight

Posted: Updated:

One newborn and his mother will forever have a story that soars over most.

This little guy was born mid-air, as his mom was on a Spirit Airlines flight.

She was flying from Florida to Dallas this week, when she started having contractions.

She was 36-weeks pregnant.

Fortunately, a pediatrician and a nurse were on the flight.

Baby Cristoph couldn't quite wait for the emergency landing in New Orleans and was safely delivered at 30-thousand feet.

She was traveling with her two other children.

The family chose to drive the rest of the way.
