[CBSPhilly] PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – SEPTA Police Officer Loyd Rodgers and his partner gave the stork a helping hand after a female rider approached them at the Olney station on the Broad Street Subway line telling them she had just given birth aboard a northbound train.
There, nestled in her clothing, the officer saw a brand new baby boy, umbilical cord still attached.
Rodgers, a 12-year veteran and father of a teenage daughter, immediately assisted the new mother, wrapping the little boy in a blanket, and calling for medics….
….In an exclusive interview with CBS 3, Rodgers described how all activity in the busy subway station suddenly halted. Riders snapped pictures and shouting “congratulations” to the new mom.
“It was a celebration,” said Officer Rodgers, “a real celebration.” Full Story and video
Holy shit. Imagine just sitting there on a Septa bus, minding your own business, listening to the Fantasy Focus podcast on your iPhone (what, no else does that?), and the lady next to you has a baby. Like, a real-life baby. That’s some crazy shit, huh?
