SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A baby who has spent the past two months in a Miami hospital after his premature birth on a cruise ship reached his final destination in Utah.
Baby Haiden arrived home in Ogden on Saturday night after a flight that included medical equipment to ensure safe transport.
Emily Morgan and her husband were on a seven-day cruise around the eastern Caribbean on Aug. 31 when she started experiencing contractions.
The baby was not due until December, and Morgan's doctor had approved the trip.
The 1 1/2 pound boy was hospitalized in Puerto Rico and then transferred to a children's hospital in Miami a few days later.
Morgan says Haiden will be hospitalized in Ogden for the next several weeks but hopes he will be home for Christmas.
This story has been corrected to show that Emily Morgan was not on the flight.
