Yanjin Li's water broke while she and her husband were riding a train in Philadelphia on Christmas. Sgt. Daniel Caban and Officer Darrell James of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority arrived to assist her. They coached her through the birthing process and unwrapped the umbilical cord from around the baby's neck. His father placed him in a shirt to keep him warm.
Because he was born on Christmas, the couple named the boy Kris. He's the best Christmas present for everyone involved. The Associated Press reports:
Mother and child were reported in good condition at Hahnemann University Hospital.
James, a father himself, called the birth a blessing. Caban said helping bring a new life into the world was a gift all its own.
"I had already opened all my presents," Caban told WPVI-TV on Thursday. "I didn't know I had another one waiting for me around 5:53 this afternoon."
Here's more security camera footage from the birth.
