    Pretty amazing, especially that the baby was unharmed and that the mother was able to jump from a moving train and run down the track immediately after giving birth.

    What is it with trains and babies at the moment? Brilliant story to read though.

    Also wtf; toilets lead right onto the tracks?

    i guess it is basically just a (rather large) hole.

    quite incredible story.

    yeah toilet leads right to the track...its pretty dirty but its slowly changing...they are upgrading the trains...india has the largest train traveling population in the world...(even i have traveled:cool:) the new trains aren't as dirty as they used to be...its just that in rural areas the situation is still bad

    and this is not uncommon...i heard a similar story about a woman giving birth on toilet seat and the baby slipped through the toilet on to the track...the mother fainted and the relatives got to know about the baby after half an hour...and she survived..:)

    yes i am from india...just moved to US in july:)high schools and football games are pretty awesome here:cool:

    On older British trains they do too, so its not surprising they do in India on some trains ;).

    Wow, 6 billion journeys a year by train, even in China its only 1 billion.

    An amazing story. The amount of adrenaline running through the female body during birth is remarkable.

    That was my first though after how awesome it was that the newborn was okay.
