SFO flight diverts after woman goes into labor

A flight from San Francisco to Minneapolis had to make an emergency landing in Salt Lake City Wednesday morning because of medical issues involving a pregnant woman on board, a Salt Lake City International Airport spokeswoman said.

Delta Air Lines Flight 2566 left San Francisco International Airport at 6:49 a.m. but made the emergency landing in Salt Lake City at about 9:30 a.m. local time, Salt Lake City airport spokeswoman Barbara Gann said.

The pregnant woman had a medical emergency and was taken to a hospital. Gann could not provide further details on the woman’s condition, though Fox-13 in Salt Lake City reported the woman later gave birth at a local hospital.

Once the woman was taken off the plane, it resumed its flight to Minneapolis and is expected to arrive there this afternoon.
