A special delivery in a place known for so much sadness.
A baby was born on the train platform at the World Trade Center in New York around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday.
The mother and father tried to make it to the hospital, but the baby had other ideas.
A police officer, who happened to be a former EMT, stepped in to handle the delivery of a healthy baby girl.
The baby weighed 6 lbs 14 oz.
Everyone is resting comfortably.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo offered a personal congratulations on Twitter.
"Congratulations! @PANYNJ police delivered a baby on the WTC PATH platform early this morning — the first baby born at the WTC site since 9/11."
The World Trade Center's official Twitter account posted: "First Baby girl born this morning on Platform B at the WTC Transportation Hub this morning at 2:36 AM. Congrats to the parents!"
