Washington, DC's Red Line train delayed due to … childbirth

The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority appreciates your patience tonight on the Red Line, as delays are expected due to a woman giving birth on the train. The Metro did send out this advisory on Twitter:

Word quickly got out that the medical emergency was a baby being born.


No, no one’s live-tweeting the delivery as far as we know, but a Washington Post reporter did let people know just what was going on.

We’re happy to know the baby is going to be born in the hospital and not on the D.C. Metro, as are these folks.

    Well, congratulations to the mother. Luckily the baby is being born in a hospital.

    Those last 3 tweets- particularly Chris Ho Ho Howdy’s- are hysterical. Congrats, Mom.

    Another anchor baby, yet another violation of our rights. The gov’t constantly violates our rights.

    They violate the 1st Amendment by caging protesters and banning books like “America Deceived II”.

    They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by allowing TSA to grope you.

    They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars.

    Impeach Obama.

    Last link of “America Deceived II” before it is completely banned:

      Dude, what exactly are you on about and how does it relate to the topic?

      • mickeyco

        Oh, thanks. I couldn’t figure it out & thought I was just having a bad brain day.

        • NRPax

          It’s cool. I read through it three times before I posted that remark.

    She’s lucky it wasn’t NY she would have been pushed under a train .

    It’s nice that the Red Line was a place of bringing new life into the world, rather than causing life to end for a change

    Childbirth on a train? Fortunately, not today. Imagine the cell phone pics that would be all over the net.
