  • TEMPO.CODepok - A woman gave birth on the Commuter Line (KRL) train yesterday afternoon, April 25. Putri Nitrila (21), was riding the Bogor-Jakarta Kota line.

    "She got on from Depok Baru Station and was going to Kota," said Anne Purba, PT Kereta Commuter Indonesia (KCI) spokesperson.

    Anne said Putri felt a contraction as the train was approaching the University of Indonesia Station. Officers on the train and a number of passengers helped to deliver the baby. 

    The train stopped for about 10 minutes during the emergency delivery process.
