Plane diverts as traveler appears to go into labor

Authorities say a pregnant passenger believed to have gone into labor aboard a plane is being treated at a Salt Lake City hospital after her flight was diverted to Utah.

Salt Lake City International Airport spokeswoman Barbara Gann says it appeared the woman went into labor but doctors are evaluating her to determine what happened Wednesday morning on the airplane heading from San Francisco to Minneapolis.

Gann says a pediatrician on board assisted the woman.

The Delta Air Lines flight landed in Salt Lake City about 9:40 a.m. MST and the woman was taken to a local hospital.

Delta spokeswoman Lindsay McDuff said the flight left San Francisco at 6:40 a.m. PST and was scheduled to continue to Minneapolis about 45 minutes after landing.
