FORT LAUDERDALE - Crew and medical professionals helped deliver a baby after a woman went into labor on a JetBlue flight Friday.

ABC News reports the woman was en route from Luis Munoz Marin International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico, to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in South Florida when she gave birth to a baby boy.

"We'd like to thank the crew and medical professionals on board for their quick action under pressure, and wish the new mother and son all the best," said airline spokeswoman Tamara Young.

Yaqui Ramos, with JetBlue ground operations, shared photos after the flight landed.

Coincidentally, Ramos said the name of the airplane was “Born to Be Blue.”
