A Delta Air Lines flight from Salt Lake City to Honolulu turned into a big surprise: a baby was born at 30,000 feet. Baby Raymond and mom, Lavi Mounga, are resting peacefully at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children, but just four days ago, they were part of a mid-air emergency. “It happened with about three hours left in flight and people were like why don’t you do an emergency landing,” said passenger Julia Hansen. Passengers on the flight were unsure what was happening. “We’re like, we are above the Pacific Ocean, there’s nowhere to land,” Hansen said. Lani Bamfield, Mimi Ho and Amanda Beeding were on a girls’ trip to paradise. Bamfield was the first to approach the bathroom, where the calls for help were coming from.
