Baby on Board

The transit police officers who helped deliver a Christmas baby on a subway train reunited with the newborn boy and his parents Friday morning, trading the chaos of the dingy rail car where they first met for the comfort of a hospital room. AP reports:

Sgt. Daniel Caban and Officer Darrell James — who joined the delivery-in-progress shortly before 6 p.m. Thursday — came bearing souvenir gifts, including a Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority stuffed train and scarf.

Passengers on the eastbound Market-Frankford train said the officers helped coach the woman, identified Friday as Yanjin Li, through the delivery, removed the umbilical cord from the boy’s neck and placed him in her arms. The baby’s father wrapped him in a shirt to keep warm.

“It was breathtaking,” said passenger Ashley Dorsey, who aided in the birth.

The mother named her child Kris, as in Christmas, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.

“He was born on Christmas,” she told the newspaper, while thanking everyone who helped. “It seemed like the right thing to do.”

Dorsey said the woman’s water broke as the train headed for the 15th and Market streets station.

Passengers rushed in to help, turning the woman to her side and laying her flat across a row of seats, Dorsey said. The woman’s husband appeared frantic, she said, so passengers kept congratulating him to calm him down.
