Utah-bound plane lands in Nebraska for pregnant passenger
First Published Apr 18 2012 10:44 am • Last Updated Apr 18 2012 10:46 am

North Platte, Neb. • A plane had to make an emergency landing in western Nebraska because a pregnant passenger needed to get to a hospital.

SkyWest Airlines spokesman Rob Brewer tells the North Platte Telegraph that the woman went into labor Tuesday while the plane was en route from Kansas City, Mo., to Salt Lake City.

The SkyWest plane, which was officially Delta flight 4781, arrived in North Platte at 7:21 p.m. Tuesday with 62 passengers.

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.
