(The Philippine Star) - May 23, 2013 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - A 35-year-old woman gave birth while riding a Light Rail Transit (LRT)-Line 1 yesterday morning.

Hernando Cabrera, LRT spokesman, said Maria Cecilia Lopez, a nurse of the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. who was among the passengers, assisted Darlene Idio in her delivery.

Idio gave birth to a baby boy at 6:25 a.m. as the train passed Carriedo station.

Cabrera said Idio and her companion, William Bilon, boarded the train at Baclaran station on their way to Doroteo Jose station.

Idio experienced labor pains while the train was approaching Central Terminal, prompting guard-on-duty Michelle Manansala to seek help from the passengers.

LRT guards Roel Azuela  and Ronan Alarcon assisted in bringing mother and child to the Jose Fabella Hospital as the train reached Doroteo Jose station.

The baby was named Carri, after Carriedo station. –Rey Galupo, Rainier Allan Ronda
