SEPTA Officers Deliver Baby Aboard Train (Video)

Christmas baby born on subway by cops, two SEPTA transit officers jumped into action aboard the Market-Frankford El in Center City to help a mother deliver a baby on a subway train on Thursday, the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority said.

Sargent Daniel Caban says a passerby told him a woman was ready to give birth inside a subway car. He and Officer Dorrell James rushed downstairs to the platform at the 15th Street Station.

“As soon as we got there, I could see the baby’s head coming through her sweatpants, and we just went right to work,” Caban tells KYW Newsradio.

You never really know what to expect for a day on the job, do you?

“I was hoping for a quiet day, but this is worth it,” Caban says. “This is what our job about.”

Officer James says he’ll never forget this:

“Just a good Christmas, you know. I know it’s definitely a good Christmas for that family.”
James, also a father, says the delivery went as well as he could have hoped.

Both the mother and her baby boy were taken to the hospital for evaluation.
