Stories about premature babies always capture my immediate attention, and this story tops many of them. A pregnant woman gave birth prematurely to a baby girl in a train toilet this week, and the baby fell through the toilet and onto the tracks (Indian train toilets are open to the ground). The woman then passed out and since it was the middle of the night, she was not discovered by her brother-in-law until two stations later. Covered in blood, she figured out what had happened and her family pulled the cord to stop the train and alert the railway authorities.
The baby was discovered lying on the train tracks, two hours after birth. Weighing a little over 3 pounds and born 8 weeks prematurely, she survived being dropped from a moving train and lying on the tracks for 2 hours in the cold. She is now in a NICU in Rajastan.
