PHILADELPHIA (AP) – 


Transit officers in Pennsylvania helped make a very special Christmas delivery.

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority says two transit officers jumped into action to help a mother deliver a baby on a subway train.

SEPTA says the delivery happened as the train was approaching a stop in Philadelphia Thursday evening.

Officials say the mother and baby were taken to a hospital in good condition.

WCAU-TV reports SEPTA Police Chief Thomas Nestel III later tweeted about his department’s excitement over the birth.
