Firefighters Help Woman Give Birth On Delta Flight


Many crazy things happen on Delta airlines flights, but this time, the airline’s flight ordeal was a positive thing. On the flight from Mexico to Atlanta, one of the passengers went into labor with over three hours left.

Liliana Castaneda Avilia was due December 23, but her little one decided it was time to make her appearance mid-flight. Liliana began having contractions on the flight from Guadalajara to Atlanta.

Thankfully, a nurse was on board the flight to assist her while she was in the back of the Delta airplane, according to CBS46.

“He was like yeah the baby girl is coming, it’s on it’s way, and he was like don’t try to push, because if you push more the baby will come out, so i hold those contractions for like 3 hours and 30 minutes on the way here.”

Once the plane landed, Juanetta Nash and other firefighters waiting on the ground got on the plane and helped her deliver her baby. Liliana said, “They were like, okay, are you ready to push, I’m like yeah, I’m ready to push, so I just push once, and the baby girl came out crying.”

Nash said the flight attendants announced to the passengers on the plane, “Hey, we have a baby girl, and everybody started clapping.” Liliana said, “Thank you to the people that were in the airplane, like the ems the fire department, everybody who helped us.”
