A new-born baby was awarded a lifetime of free flights on a U.S. airlines after his mother gave birth while travelling from Fort Lauderdale to Dallas.
Yesterday a chaotic scene erupted at the Spirit Airlines counter after flights were canceled which led to passengers getting irate and the police had to move in to restore order. Although he was thousands of miles from home and thousands of feet off the ground at birth, Lezcano was born a healthy 7 pounds and 19.5 inches - and without any complications for mother or baby. "I notified the flight attendants from the beginning and they were able to talk to doctors on the ground", she said. But nearly immediately after her Dallas-bound flight took off, she started to feel a bit unusual. An unidentified pediatrician and a nurse aboard the plane helped deliver the baby.
"Everything started happening very quickly". "Soon after that, it was clear I was having my baby, and I was in pure panic". Penton said that, because her first two children were carried to term, the thought of delivering at 36 weeks never concerned her.
Yesterday, Spirit representatives visited Ms Penton and Christoph, and gifted him with free birthday flights for life for himself and a guest. "We were just all along for the ride, I think".
"He told me you're pushing it, you're doing it last minute and may be you shouldn't but then again, I'm stubborn, so I figured, no, no, we can handle this", Ms Penton said. She had carried two babies to full-term, and though heavily pregnant, she was unconcerned about flying just weeks out from her due date.
