A teenage girl gave birth to a baby boy on a long-haul flight from South Africa to New York on Saturday.
Fatawmatt Kaba, 17, was on board a South African Airways flight from Johannesburg bound for JFK when she went into labor four hours after taking off.
Luckily for Miss Kaba, who is originally from Angola, there were two doctors and a nurse on board to help deliver the child at 38,000 feet.
When the young woman went into labor, the crew asked over the loudspeaker if a doctor was on board.
Fortunately a pediatric anesthesiologist Dr Julie Williamson was present - on her way home to California from a medical conference in South Africa - along with Dr Steve Paridon.
Passengers were amazed that the young girl barely uttered a sound during the quick delivery.
Her newborn son, whom she named Mamel Joella, was immediately wrapped in blankets and rocked my airline crew as they walked up and down the aisles.
