Philadelphia — Transit officer Steven Rocher got up before dawn on Christmas to deliver a few more presents to his mother's house. He ended up delivering a very special gift indeed.
Rocher, 51, a police sergeant with the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority, was driving through North Philadelphia on Tuesday when he heard a woman scream.
The woman was lying on the sidewalk near a bus stop, about to give birth, and he saw a man tugging at her clothes.
"As I got closer, he says to me, 'Help me, please!'" Rocher said.
Rocher, a transit officer for two decades, said employees get annual CPR training "but nothing about delivering babies."
