A US Airways flight was diverted to Houston after a baby reportedly stopped breathing – with passengers on board coming to the baby’s rescue.
Flight 678 departed from Tampa International Airport Tuesday en route to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. As the plane neared Houston, a baby on the flight stopped breathing and turned purple, passengers told KSAZ FOX10 in Phoenix. Two people with medical training responded, rushing to help.
As rescue efforts continued, the pilots prepared for an emergency landing.
“When we heard the baby cry, it was just … it was a teary moment for everybody,” a female passenger told FOX10.
After the baby started crying, the passengers cheered.
The passenger was taken off the flight when the plane landed in Houston, and EMTs attended to the passenger, US Airways spokesman Liz Landau told ABC News. US Airways declined to release any information about the passenger.
There’s no word on the baby’s condition.

When it was announced that Andi Dorfman would be the new star of "The Bachelorette," fans were split on whether she'd be a good fit.
Host Chris Harrison assures critics not to worry: she will be.
"She'll be great," he told ABC News. "I like Andi a lot. She jumped off the page because she's so bright and such a professional woman."
Harrison said she reminds him of former "Bachelor" star Sean Lowe, who spoke out in defense of Harrison after Monday's disastrous "After the Final Rose" show.
"When Sean came off of Emily [Maynard]'s season, people didn't know him to be the fun-loving jokester that he is. They saw a different guy on Emily's season because you didn't get to see him that much and I feel like Andi's the same way," he said. "People see her as a tough woman who cross-examined Juan Pablo, but there's a soft, sweet, really funny vulnerable side that will make her a great Bachelorette."Read More »from Chris Harrison Shares Why 'Bachelorette' Andi Will Surprise You

A new diet pill called the Obalon inflates inside your stomach to mimic the results of weight loss surgery. Once you swallow the pill, the device can stay in your stomach up to three months before it is removed.
The pill's maker, Obalon Therapeutics, claims overweight and obese patients can lose up to 20 pounds in three months because it helps you feel full, so you eat less. You can swallow up to three balloons in a 12-week period to speed up weight loss, according to the company.
