Woman Delivers Her Own Baby on NYC Subway Car
11 months ago
Wanda Dueno was by herself on train when she felt contractions.
We're not sure if this type of stuff goes into the Guinness Book of World Records, but it should.
Wanda Dueno, 24, was on a train by herself going from Queens to the Bronx at 1:30 am when she started feeling contractions.
Even though she wasn't due until next week, she had just had a baby last year and knew that these weren't regular contractions. No, these were "this baby is coming out now" contractions.
She says she tried to hold the baby in and call the train conductor, but to no avail.
By the time the train conductor arrived, she had already delivered the baby herself.
“She called to say she had the baby on the train. I was like, ‘What! You had the baby on the train? You’re lying,’” said Wanda’s mom, Charlotte Mbaye.
The 7-pound, 2-ounce has been named Libasse, but family and even the MTA chief has suggested that the baby be nicknamed "Metro" or "MetroCard."
And in case you're wondering, yes, service on the train was halted so that it could be sanitized later.
