MEXICO: A baby boy whose 22-year-old mother gave birth in a Mexico City subway station will be allowed to travel free on the train network for life. The AP reports that the woman was trying to reach the hospital after going into labor, but her child made his arrival in an entryway to a platform even before that. Mexico City mayor Miguel Angel Mancera told his Twitter followers how the drama unfolded. He said that the baby was born at Pantitlán station, and the mother and child were attended to by staff at the station, as well as auxiliary police. Mancera added: “The newborn will have the benefit of using the @STCMetroDF for free for life.” Staff and police who assisted in the delivery will also receive recognition, he said.
