PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A span of Philadelphia movement military officers rushed onto a downtown transport sight on Christmas and helped make a special delivery: a baby boy.
Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority Sgt. Daniel Caban and Officer Darrell James assimilated a delivery-in-progress shortly before 6 p.m. Thursday during a 15th and Market streets station.
They coached a lady by a delivery, unwrapped a umbilical cord from a baby’s neck and placed a child in her arms. The baby’s father wrapped him in a shirt to keep warm.
“Everything only happened so quick, though it was amazing,” James told WCAU-TV.
The mom and baby were taken to Hahnemann University Hospital, where they were reported in good condition.
SEPTA military Chief Thomas Nestel III tweeted his fad over a birth, writing: “Transit Police SGT and PO broach baby on Market Frankford El train!!!! WOOHOO!!! Now that’s a Christmas gift!!!”
Later, a arch joked that he had waived a transport for SEPTA’s “newest rider.”
James, a father, called a birth a blessing. Caban pronounced assisting to move a new life into a universe was a present all the own.
“I had already non-stop all my presents,” Caban told WPVI-TV. “I didn’t know we had another one watchful for me around 5:53 this afternoon.”
