A woman says three New York City police officers helped her deliver a baby boy during Penn Station's morning rush hour.

Marie Boothe said when she went into labor Wednesday morning at the busy Manhattan rail station, thoughts of a traditional hospital birth quickly went out of her head, CNN said.

"Forget the ambulance, forget everything else -- I'm going to have the baby right here," Boothe recalled hours after the successful birth.

Luckily for Boothe, an Amtrak officer and three members of the police department's counter-terrorism patrol unit were on hand to help deliver her new child.

NYPD police officer Marie Medina, who assisted in the rush-hour birth, told CNN the birth of the newest New York commuter was met with name suggestions from on-lookers.

"They started yelling, 'Name him Penn, after Penn Station," Medina said.

CNN said Boothe and her child, whom she named Caesar Penn Boothe, are doing well at an area hospital.
