A baby delivered inside the lavatory of an Indian train slipped through the toilet bowl to fall on rail tracks but survived.

Police officer, Anil Sirohi said on Wednesday in New Delhi that a pregnant woman had labour pains while travelling on Monday on the train in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh on Monday.

He said that the 23-year-old went to the toilet and delivered a baby girl that slipped out and onto the tracks from the train.
“Passengers on the train heard her cries for help and pulled the emergency chain to bring the train to a halt.

“Moments later they ran toward the baby and found it was alive,’’ he said.
The officer said that the railway police moved both mother and child to a nearby hospital.
Railway official, Chandra Mohan-Jindal, said it was a miracle that the newborn girl survived after falling on concrete boulders of the track from such a height.

“Fortunately the train was not at a great speed as it had just begun its journey from the railway station.

Mohan-Jindal said that it was the second such incident in India this year.
“In February, a baby born in a train toilet survived a similar fall onto the tracks in the Rajasthan state.
