It’s being called a Christmas miracle.
Two Philadelphia transit police officers helped deliver a baby on Christmas day, Thursday, December 25 right on the train.
The commuter, a woman, went into labor when SEPTA police officers Sgt. Daniel Caban and Officer Darrell James were called onto the train.
“We just came down,” Sgt. Caban told local ABC 6 news. “We just thought it would be nice to bring the newborn baby, the little miracle baby some presents.”
According to the officers, the baby’s head had crowned and could be seen inside his mom’s sweatpants by the time they got to her even.
The mom named the newborn Chris, symbolic for the day he was born.
