PHILADELPHIA – A flight crew helped welcome a new passenger aboard a Southwest Airlines flight en route from Philadelphia to Orlando.

Video posted to social media by passengers show flight crew huddled near the front of the plane, and the sounds of the newborn’s cries.

Officials say the flight was diverted to Charleston, South Carolina after the woman went into labor.

According to WPVI, after the plane’s emergency landing, first responders transported the parents and their new baby to a nearby hospital. Flight 556 then continued on to Orlando.
