Baby Falls Down Train Toilet Onto Tracks

Recommended Posts

AHMADABAD, India (Feb. 28) - A newborn baby girl fell through the toilet in a moving train and onto the tracks moments after her mother prematurely gave birth, surviving nearly two hours before being found, relatives said Thursday.


The child's mother, who uses the single name Bhuri, was traveling with relatives on an overnight train when she went to the bathroom shortly before midnight Tuesday and unexpectedly gave birth to a baby girl, said Arjun Kumar, her brother-in-law.


"Later, she fell unconscious and the baby fell through the toilet," he continued. "Two stations later, we knocked at the door."


Bhuri opened the door, soaked in blood.


"When we asked her about what happened, she said the baby had fallen through onto the tracks," Kumar said.


Toilets on Indian trains usually have holes that open directly onto the tracks, and there were no indications Thursday that authorities doubted Bhuri's story or planned to investigate the incident.


Kumar said that after finding Bhuri, relatives pulled the train's emergency brake and told railway officials what had happened. A search was quickly organized, and guards at one of the stations the train had passed soon found the baby.


"She was on the rail track for almost 1 1/2 to two hours," said Dr. Gautam Jain, a pediatrician at Rajasthan Hospital in Ahmadabad, in the western state of Gujarat, where the baby and mother were taken.


The child, who has not yet been named, was eight to 10 weeks premature and weighed only 3.22 pounds, Jain said. She had a low heart rate and body temperature.


"We do not expect such children to survive," Jain said.

I have many jokes to say, but it does involve a baby (albeit in an over populated country). I'll just shut up now.
