Delta Flight 131 to Atlanta was near Washington when a woman about 32 to 36 weeks pregnant went into labor Wednesday afternoon, prompting an emergency stop in Charlotte, N.C.

Two doctors who were on board the 192-passenger plane delivered the baby girl successfully.

“It was a heroic effort by our flight attendant crew and our customers on board who were fortunately doctors,” said Delta spokeswoman Betsy Talton. They were Dr. Robert Vincent, a pediatric cardiologist with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and an adult cardiologist from Savannah, Ga.

Vincent used medical equipment on the plane to resuscitate the child, who had turned blue with no heart rate. The baby later was listed in good condition at a neonatal intensive care unit in Charlotte, said Jason Rollins, spokesman for the Atlanta-based pediatric hospital.

After the stopover in Charlotte, the flight continued to Atlanta, Talton said.
