(Los Angeles, Ca – KCBA FOX 35 and CNN) A China Airlines flight from Taipei to Los Angeles ended up with one extra passenger by the time the plane landed. That’s because the mom went into labor in mid air and give birth in the middle of the flight with the help of a doctor on board and crew from the airline.

A doctor who happened to be on board helped to deliver the baby.

Mother and baby were sent to a local hospital in healthy condition, while the plane refueled and continued its journey, arriving in Los Angeles three hours behind schedule.
