A plane made an emergency landing at North Platte’s Regional Airport because a pregnant passenger needed to get to the hospital.
Skywest Airlines official says that a woman went into labor while the plane was enroute from Kansas, City, Missouri to Salt Lake City, Utah.
The Skywest plane, which was officially Delta Airlines Flight 4781, arrived in North Platte at 7:21 Tuesday morning with 62 passengers on board.
The woman was taken by ambulance to Great Plains Regional Medical Center and the plane continued on to its destination about an hour after it landed.
The woman was released from the hospital late Tuesday.
A hospital spokesman declined Wednesday to provide any details about her case, so it wasn’t immediately clear whether she gave birth.
