On Wednesday, passengers on a Mombasa-bound Madaraka Express train witnessed a wonderful event when a woman received a newborn baby.
According to a Kenya Railways post on Twitter, the mom welcomed her kid with the assistance of a doctor who happened to be onboard and a passenger attendant.
Kenya Railways shared the news with images showing an attendant holding the baby.
“We are delighted to share a heartwarming story of a mother who welcomed her bundle of joy on board the Madaraka Express Passenger Service train to Mombasa,” Kenya Railways wrote.
“We were blessed to have Dr. Indanyenyi Luseso onboard who performed the delivery, assisted by our Passenger Attendant, Ms. Mary Nyiha.”
