    Doctors Refuse To Help Woman Giving Birth On Airplane

    The airline says the woman started having contractions seven hours into the 12-hour flight.

    Los Angeles, CA -- A Russian airline delivered more than it bargained for on a flight from Moscow to Los Angeles.

    A woman traveling on the Aeroflot flight gave birth on the plane with the help of flight attendants. Two doctors on board refused to help, but the airline did not say why.

    The airline says the woman started having contractions seven hours into the 12-hour flight. And the pilot requested a landing at the nearest military airport in Canada. But he was told the runway was too short for the Boeing 767 and continued on to Los Angeles.

    The delivery went well and the woman was able to leave the plane on her own carrying the baby boy.

    I could hazzard a guess and say they did not want to have any liability if something happened to the baby.

    The Doctors don't know her history, her condition, or the medical history or condition of the baby.

    My question being: This women must have been at least 7 months pregnant, aware of her due date, so why was she on a plane anyways.......

    She probably didn't have her insurance information handy.
