Woman goes into labor at Metro station

This post has been updated.

Traveling on Metro every day can feel repetitive, but every so often, something slightly different happens during the morning commute. Case in point: A 22-year-old woman apparently went into labor on the platform at the Congress Heights station earlier Tuesday morning, according to Metro.

She didn’t actually give birth on the platform, though, and was taken to an area hospital at 8:22 a.m., per Metro spokesman Dan Stessel. If you’re curious: No, this didn’t impact Green Line service.

We have no word yet on the woman’s condition, but we will update if and when we hear ssomething.
