PHOENIX – Authorities say a Supai woman has given birth aboard a helicopter.
The 33-year-old woman was in labor Tuesday at a clinic near the Grand Canyon.
A state Department of Public Safety helicopter took her to Kingman Regional Medical Center, about 130 miles from the Supai Village clinic, so she could deliver the baby at the hospital.
Shortly before landing in Kingman, DPS medics aboard the helicopter delivered the baby boy.
Authorities said no complications were reported. The name of the woman had not been released.
