Unexpected passenger: Woman gives birth to premature baby aboard Delta flight to Hawaii

Lavinia Mounga boarded a Delta flight to Honolulu, expecting to have a relaxing family vacation. Hours later, Mounga would land in Hawaii with a newborn baby boy, named Raymond, in her arms.

The new mother had no idea she was pregnant and gave birth at just 29 weeks, according to the Associated Press. 

On Wednesday, about halfway through the flight from Salt Lake, Utah, a medical emergency was announced by the flight’s captain and four passengers ran to Mounga’s aid. 

Hawaii Pacific Health family medicine physician Dr. Dale Glenn and North Kansas City Hospital NICU nurses Lani Bamfield, Amanda Beeding and Mimi Ho helped Mounga deliver her son and monitored the baby’s health for several hours.
