Every day, over 350,000 infants are born somewhere in the globe. However, the delivery of a child in the air is not just something that happens very often.
During May of 2022, passengers on a Frontier aircraft from the Denver International Airport to the Orlando International Airport were subjected to the most strange experience of their lives.
During the time that she was flying with Frontier, one woman went into labor extremely unexpectedly and much earlier than planned.
A flight attendant by the name of Diana Giraldo assisted a woman in labor in making her way to the rear of the aircraft and into the restroom there.
According to Frontier Airlines, Giraldo assisted the woman who was giving birth in delivering her child while they were in flight.
Even though Orlando was supposed to be the final destination for the flight, the airport dispatch instructed the aircraft to land at Pensacola, Florida, instead. After the plane had come in for a landing and the passengers had exited, an ambulance was waiting for the mother and her newborn baby.
Frontier Airlines subsequently revealed that the baby’s middle name was given the name “Sky” since he or she was born in the air, and this was done after the mother and child had arrived at the hospital without incident.
After such an eventful journey, Chris Nye, a pilot with Frontier Airlines, had nothing but admiration for the flight attendant who assisted in the delivery of the unique bundle of joy.
The pilot continued by saying that in order to make everything work, the whole crew had to participate actively and assist in the flight by taking on a variety of tasks.
