A passenger gave birth on a Cairo subway car late on Thursday, Cairo metro company spokesman Ahmed Abdel Hady said.

The mother was travelling on a Helwan-direction train when she went into labour as the train stopped in the Sayeda Zeinab station, near downtown Cairo.

The mother received post-delivery assistance from passengers; she and the child, a baby girl, were then taken to hospital.
