Woman Airlifted From Catalina Island After Going Into Early Labor

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A woman in her 20s had to be airlifted by the U.S. Coast Guard after going into early labor on Catalina Island.

The Coast Guard says a MH-65 Dolphin helicopter airlifted the woman — who was facing possible life-threatening birth complications — to Long Beach Airport about 6:30 a.m. Sunday, according to a news release.

From there, she was rushed via ground ambulance to Long Beach Memorial Hospital, which was the initial destination before her water broke mid-air.

No information was currently available on the mother or baby’s condition.
