Baby delivered on flight from Paris to N.Y.

a little boy holding a baby: Baby Jake was born on an international flight between Paris and New York.

a man and a woman lying on a bed: Dr. Hemal was seated next to French pediatrician, Dr. Susan Shepherd, and together they delivered the healthy baby boy.

Jake was born on December 17, 2017 aboard an international flight.

Last month, Dr. Sij Hemal was settling in to a trans-Atlantic flight on Air France. He'd just attended his best friend's wedding in New Delhi, India and was beginning the Paris-to-New York leg of his day-long journey home. Hemal, a second-year urology resident at Cleveland Clinic's Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute, was seated next to a French pediatrician – by total coincidence – and was watching a movie and awaiting a glass of champagne.
"I was pretty tired from jet lag," Dr. Hemal recalled in a post on Cleveland Clinic's website. "I thought I'd just have a drink and fall asleep. As it turned out, I'm glad I didn't drink anything."

It's safe to say fellow passenger Toyin Ogundipe, a 41-year-old banker who resides in both the U.K. and Nigeria, feels the same way. She went into labor midway into the flight.
