A mother’s Christmas turned into the ultimate holiday miracle when two transit officers helped deliver her baby on a subway car in Philadelphia.

As the woman went into labor on the subway, Sgt. Daniel Caban and Officer Dorrell James of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) boarded the train following the emergency call. After calming the parents down, the baby was successfully brought into the world.

“We just went right to work,” Caban said. Cell phone images published to social media showed the officers holding the baby, then later carrying it out of the subway wrapped in swaddling.

“Everything just happened so quick, but it was amazing,” James told WCAU-TV. “I had already opened all my presents,” Caban said. “I didn’t know I had another one waiting for me around 5:53 this afternoon.”

The mother and child were taken to a local hospital and are doing just fine.
