Passengers Help Deliver Baby On Flight

Looks like the stork had the day off Friday!

Passengers on Southwest Airlines' Flight 441 stepped in to help though, delivering a baby boy mid-flight.

The flight started off in Chicago, Illinois with 122 passengers and landed with 122.

A woman who was reportedly eight months pregnant went into labor on the plane.

Thankfully, there was a doctor onboard.

A shoe string was used to tie off the umbilical cord.

The flight was originally headed for Salt Lake, Utah but diverted to Denver, Colorado to let off the new mom and her baby.

The mother and her infant are said to be in good condition.
