Maybe next time, take a cab?
Jeanie Colberg was on the 4 train with her young daughter on the way to the hospital yesterday when her water broke.
Luckily, a good samaritan was there to comfort her and calm her down a bit. At Union Square, EMS workers were there to handle the rest. She ended up giving birth to a 7 pound baby in the back of the ambulance.
She even gave the baby her middle name, Rochelle, after a transit worker that assisted her.
I don’t know for a fact that she was on the way to the hospital because she was in labor. If not, it’s a pretty freaky coincidence.
So let’s assume she was in labor, would you really take the 4 train? I’m personally gonna go with NO. It’s either 911, or take a cab. Even if you’re a bit light on the cab fare, I’m pretty sure they’d let you get away with it.
