Airline Delays Flight So Soldier Can Watch Daughter’s Birth on FaceTime

A photo and video of a soldier watching the birth of his first child live on his phone while stuck at the airport is going viral. Brooks Lindsey of Mississippi was on his way home to be there for his daughter’s birth, but a delay kept him from getting there in person.

The dad-to-be was FaceTiming his wife during labor when the airline called for passengers to board to plane, but the doctor said the baby was coming any minute. So airport personnel allowed him to wait to see this once in a lifetime event before getting on the plane. A fellow passenger, Tracy Dover, snapped a photo (below) of the sweet moment she witnessed and posted it on Facebook.

Brooks made it to the hospital just a few hours after Millie’s birth and got to spend four days with her before he had to return to duty.
