Better in the airport then on the plane I'm thinking. Although you would probably get a first class seat out of it...
 
2004-12-28 06:57:55 PM
Uh, did she not know her due date was soon??
 
2004-12-28 09:40:29 PM
No, no, no. This is supposed to happen in the seat next to me on a cross country flight.
 
2004-12-28 09:41:03 PM
It's possible something happened and she gave birth way in advance of her due date.

DaCricket: Better in the airport then on the plane I'm thinking.

i wonder what nationality one gets if they're born in the air past any lines of demarkation....

Well, so much for illegal baby smuggling plan #47.

Is this a trick question, like that "where do they bury the survivors" one?

I bet she wasn't even pregnant when she got in line.
 
2004-12-28 09:49:13 PM
I hope airport security checked to make sure that the baby was not carrying any weapons!

Tishykb -

I opened up the page, but once I saw how long it was, Alt-F4. It looked like it had at least 3 paragraphs. As an American, that would require a far longer attenti... I need food.

What a moving story. Airports are just like hospitals and almost just as sterile.

Uhh...their parents' nationality or nationalities?

Duh?
 
2004-12-28 09:56:32 PM
ummm... sorry, make that 2 adults and... ummm.... one child

I believe it depends on where your going, as the country you land in will be the first nation in which the child actually has a record of existing.

Did the submitter not RTFA, it was a baby girl and was born in the restroom. Not a boy at the ticket counter, jeez.

OMGWTFBBQ!!!!

An inaccurate tagline for an article on Fark?!?!? Lighten up people......
 
2004-12-28 10:08:03 PM
Tanqueray I've obviously been in the wrong lines. Which ones do you usually hang out in?
 
2004-12-28 10:13:51 PM
When are airports going to get smart and start offering hotel-like rooms for those who need them?

Too much for the traveling public I guess.

HaywoodJablonski: Is this a trick question, like that "where do they bury the survivors" one?


Technically, since the kid was born within the US, he/she/it could be considered a US Citizen.
 
2004-12-28 10:17:44 PM
I just hope they didn't go insensitively slap a destination sticker on the kid's forehead and put it in cargo or something.
 
2004-12-28 10:21:11 PM
What did they cut the umbilical cord with? The sharp edge of a page from an in-flight magazine?

When all else fails, cut with teeth...

ummm.....why, yes - you are!



/teehee!

Golf clap for the submitter... even if the headlie was less than accurate.


donald pleasance fetishist: I just hope they didn't go insensitively slap a destination sticker on the kid's forehead and put it in cargo or something.

Agreed. It would be much better if the sticker was sensitively placed on the infant.

i wonder if she even KNEW she was pregnant knowing how stupid women can be these days.. "i'm getting fat, i must cut down on my big mac intake!"
and if she DID know she was preggo.. they ain't suppose to fly in the last trimester... not reccommended... durrr. and errr... screw her for being heterosexual anyways :P
 
2004-12-28 10:25:27 PM
How did she get that past security? Man, hate TSA...
 
2004-12-28 10:25:49 PM
Security breach birth
 
2004-12-28 10:27:18 PM
Haa, Probably a foreigner getting kicked out because her Visa was up, but the kid is 100% American and is entitled to all this country has to offer..
drta..
 
2004-12-28 10:33:21 PM
Since when do they have babies working at the ticket
counter? Red the headline a few times.
deliberate spelling error 'cause you can't hear me think.
 
2004-12-28 10:33:44 PM
this article has left me with having lots of unanswered questions! did she have teeth? did she know she was pregnant? did she name the child atlanta? did she name the child FREEDOM? did she scream bloody murder? did she let the baby fall into the toilet first? why didnt she just leave it in the toilet and get on the plane anyways?! and most importantly is she hittable?!! pictures dammit! pictures! we need pictures with the farking article!!

Perhaps they should give the name "Hartsfield-Jackson" some consideration...

Heard in the womb:
The next station is Concouse E... Concourse E...

"Ahh, yes. Do you have change for a baby!"

eriksblackwell

The article didn't say the baby was born in a restroom. It said that she went to the restroom feeling unwell, and shortly thereafter went into labor. It doesn't say where the baby was actually born.
 
2004-12-29 01:15:13 AM
But will the infant's luggage arrive when her plane does?
 
2004-12-29 01:56:15 AM
Pics?

babyty: "they ain't suppose to fly in the last trimester"

I have flown pregnant several times...most recently when I was eight months pregnant with my last child. You can fly in your last trimester.(Some airlines require a doctors note.)She could have just as easily gone into labor in her car stuck in traffic...sometimes things just happen.

I didn't know you could fly in the last trimester. Why would some require a doctor's note? What are the dangers?

Tanqueray: I bet she wasn't even pregnant when she got in line.

Yeah. I got a snort outta that.
