Baby born at underground station
A women gave birth while she was travelling on the London Underground.
A woman went into labour and gave birth while travelling on the London Underground.
Julia Kowalska became only the second person to have a baby on the Tube after her waters broke on the Jubilee line.
She got off the train with her sister at Kingsbury Station, north west London, and went into labour on the platform.
A healthy baby girl was born at 9.35pm on 19 December.
A Transport for London spokesman said: "At 9pm the station supervisor received a message from the control room that a woman on a northbound Jubilee line train was complaining of stomach pains.
"A few minutes later the station supervisor went to the platform and found the pregnant woman having contractions and called an ambulance.
"The pregnant woman, accompanied by her sister, was wrapped in a foil blanket to keep warm and taken to the supervisor's office where the ambulance crew delivered a healthy baby."
The mother and baby were taken to Northwick Park Hospital where they stayed for four days before going home.
Transport for London said the only other recorded birth on the Underground was in 1924 when Marie Cordery was born at Elephant & Castle.
