Baby Born on a Plane!

A mother and her baby boy will both receive free flights for life after the woman went into labor aboard an AirAsia flight 2,000 feet in the air.

The Malaysian woman, Liew Siaw Hsia, 31, was just 27 weeks pregnant and wasn’t expecting for about another three months when she boarded the flight from Penang to Kuching.

According to AirAsia officials, the pilots diverted the flight to Kuala Lumpur for an emergency landing shortly after Liew started going into labor.

Fortunately, there was a doctor onboard who was able to help Liew deliver the boy, with the assistance of the flight attendants, while the plane made its final descent.

Officials say Liew and her son are in stable condition after being rushed to a hospital upon landing.
