Aunt of baby born mid-flight gives update on baby Jet

A family member is giving us an update on a baby born 14 weeks early on a Southwest Flight bound for Orlando.

Lisa Barber, baby Jet's aunt, spoke to Fox 35 on the phone.

Barber says her sister, Erica Walton, and her husband, Chris, are staying at a Ronald McDonald House right across the hospital in Charleston, South Carolina, where the plane was diverted to after the birth.

Barber says baby Jet is now one pound and 14 ounces, but doctors say it will be another four to eight weeks before he will be healthy enough to be brought back home to Central Florida.
