A woman gave birth Thursday morning aboard a coach of the Light Rail Transit (LRT) Line 2.
Light Rail Transit Authority (LRTA) Spokesman Hernando Cabrera, the woman went into labor at about 8:50 a.m. as the train was approaching the C.M. Recto station in Manila.
She was brought to the Fabella Memorial Hospital nearby, and baby and mother were safe, Cabrera said.
Cabrera denied rumors that children born on LRT trains were given lifetime free rides.
On May 22, a passenger gave birth aboard a northbound LRT-1 coach as the train approached the Doroteo Jose station in Manila.
Based on LRTA records, at least 14 babies have been born aboard the LRT trains since October 2012.
