This newborn will always have a special connection to Yankee Stadium—mainly because he was born right by it. Yesterday morning, little Maxwell was born inside of the 161st Street station after his mother, Tameka Snipe, went into labor on the 4 train.
According to NYPD Lt. Sylvia Mendoza, the 21-year-old Snipe "had some pain. The contractions got worse, so she got off the train. A woman came in and said the woman's water broke and she was in labor." Mendoza added that two female officers discovered that the baby was crowning when they helped her remove her pants and shoes.
Snipe and the baby were taken to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital immediately after. You can watch video footage of the event below:
