CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A woman who gave birth at an airport has given the baby a name tied to where she

was born.

Nereida Araujo went into labor Wednesday on a flight from Tampa, Florida, to Charlotte,. American Airlines spokeswoman Crystal Byrd says the flight crew radioed medics who helped deliver the baby on the plane once it landed.

Araujo says she named her newborn daughter Lizyana Sky Taylor. She says the middle name Sky was chosen because the girl was born at the airport.

A crowd burst into spontaneous applause when the two were brought off the plane.
