In order for the woman to give birth more comfortably, the train was stopped and the wagon was evacuated. The child was born at the Villeneuve-Saint-Georges station.
The mother and the child are doing well, according to the railway company.
It is not unusual for a baby to be born in a train.
According to tradition, the child receives a free ticket for life. It is possible that this child will get one too. "We will decide tomorrow," said the SNCF.
