Luckily, there were two doctors on board who helped deliver a six-pound baby girl. Little Sasha was born at 9am, an hour-and-a-half before the plane landed. The plane was over the Atlantic Ocean at the time, but in Canadian airspace so, for customs purposes, decided the girl was a Canadian citizen.
After the plane landed, Sasha and her mom were taken to a Boston hospital. "Everybody was there to help," said Dr Natarajan Raman, one of the doctors who helped deliver the baby. "People offered baby food, people brought things, people vacated their seats... The spirit of America is alive." This is the sort of story that makes me proud to be part of the human race.
