Doctors Deliver Baby on Delta Flight

Two doctors on board a Delta flight from Germany to Atlanta helped a woman give birth to a baby boy in the air somewhere near Charlotte, North Carolina.  The baby was born in the area between coach and first class (he was not charged a change fee for only showing up for part of the flight). 

The boy initially was not breathing, but doctors revived him and pronounced him healthy.  The mother was flying while 9 months pregnant, typically a no-no, but Delta has no rules about flying during the final month of pregnancy.  I bet they will now.
