MEXICO CITY (May 1, 2013)—A baby boy who born in one of Mexico City’s subway stations will be allowed to ride the trains free for life, Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera says.
The baby's 22-year-old mother was trying to take the subway to the hospital when she went into labor Tuesday.
Subway employees, police and paramedics helped her give birth in an entryway to a platform.
Mancera wrote in his Twitter account late Tuesday the yet-unnamed boy will have the right to ride the subway free for life.
Subway tickets in Mexico City cost three pesos or 25 cents for an unlimited ride.
