WASHINGTON (AP) — A woman who gave birth to a baby boy on a Metro platform in downtown Washington is getting $100 in subway or bus fare.
Shavonnte Taylor received a handwritten note of congratulations Thursday afternoon from Metro general manager Richard Sarles. Included in the note was a $100 SmarTrip card.
Taylor gave birth Thursday morning on the platform of the busy L'Enfant Plaza station. Metro officials say she went into labor aboard a green line train bound for Greenbelt, Md. An off-duty emergency medical technician helped her off the train and delivered the baby.
Taylor and her son, Amir, were taken to a hospital in apparent good health.
Sarles wrote to Taylor that he's sure the delivery didn't go as she imagined.
