Mexico City subway baby to ride free for lifeMay 1, 2013 @ 7:43 am
MEXICO CITY (AP) - Who says there's no such thing as a free ride?
Mexico City's mayor says a baby boy born in one of the city's subway stations will be allowed to ride the trains free for life.
The baby's 22-year-old mother was trying to take the subway to the hospital when she went into labor Tuesday.
Subway employees, police and paramedics helped her give birth in an entryway to a platform.
Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera wrote in his Twitter account late Tuesday the yet-unnamed boy will have the right to ride the subway free for life.
Subway tickets in Mexico City cost three pesos (25 cents) for an unlimited ride.
