Transit officers help deliver Christmas baby aboard Philadelphia train
This Christmas delivery couldn’t wait.
It was a timely, essential Christmas Day delivery.
At approximately 6:00pm ET on the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority’s (SEPTA) Market-Frankford El subway train, SEPTA transit officers helped a woman in labor deliver a baby. The mother and baby were reportedly taken to a nearby hospital, where they remain in good condition.
SEPTA Police Chief Thomas Nestel III confirmed the news via Twitter.
