Stork on the subway? Woman tells officer she gave birth on Philadelphia subway train

It was a very unusual delivery on a Philadelphia subway line.

Police say a woman riding the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority's Broad Street line told officers she gave birth aboard a northbound train Tuesday afternoon.

KYW-TV reports (http://cbsloc.al/OGCkgG) transit police Officer Loyd Rodgers and his partner gave the stork a helping hand after the woman approached them at the Olney (AHL'-nee) station. Nestled in her clothing was her baby boy, umbilical cord still attached.

Rodgers wrapped the newborn in a blanket and called for medics.

He says all activity in the busy subway station halted as riders snapped pictures and congratulated the new mom.

Mother and baby are doing fine at a hospital. The new mom's name wasn't released.
