A baby boy was born at New York's Penn Station on Wednesday after the 32-year-old mother went into labor while waiting for a Long Island Rail Road train.
The expectant mom was standing on the platform at Track 20 waiting for the train when she went into labor. Transit police helped deliver her son just after 10 a.m., the New York Post reported.

“It happened so fast. She was screaming. We brought her to the precinct, which is right inside Penn Station,” MTA police Officer Vinay Hathiraamani told the Post.
Officer Melissa DeFrancesco then carried the swaddled bundle of joy past commuters to a waiting ambulance.
“It was awesome," DeFrancesco told the New York Daily News
Mom Ana Aguirre told the Daily News that she was overcome by labor pains after buying a train ticket home.
Aguirre and her newborn were reportedly doing fine at Bellevue hospital. Little Oscar is now the youngest of four siblings ranging in age from 4 to 11.
“He’s perfect,” Aguirre said.
