Baby delivered on airport jetway

A newborn baby girl has been given the middle name 'Sky' after being born on the jetway at Charlotte Douglas International Airport in the US.

Nereida Araujo went into labour just before the American Airlines flight landed at the airport, in North Carolina, and gave birth on the airbridge.

"Everybody was cheering for me and clapping. I thought I was going to make it to hospital, but it just happened so quick, she came so fast," she said.

The family had only intended to spend a short time at Charlotte Airport in transit. They were travelling  from  Pennsylvania from Florida to visit family for the Thanksgiving holiday.

The girl has been called Lizyana Sky Taylor.
