The 39-year-old mother and her four-month-old son, Owen, were flying United Airlines from Denver to El Paso, Texas, to join her husband, an astrophysicist.

Temperatures in Denver, which was experiencing a heatwave at the time, had reached 90 degrees at the Airport.

United released a statement saying: "This should have never happened and they are profoundly sorry."

Adding: "They are actively looking into what happened to prevent this from happening again."

"Medical care was provided to the child within 16 minutes of the Captain's call for paramedics."
