A Southwest Airlines airplane headed to Orlando made an emergency landing after a baby was born in the middle of the flight.
Airline spokeswoman Melissa Ford said Flight #WN556 was on its way from Philadelphia to Orlando on Sunday when a woman went into labor.
The plane made an emergency landing in Charleston, South Carolina.
Ford said medical personnel who were on the flight helped with the delivery, and the family was taken to an area hospital when the plane landed.
Officials said the flight and the remaining passengers arrived in Orlando just over an hour behind schedule.
