Only in India: Preemie lands on railroad tracks

It's news stories such as this which cement my resolve never to go to India (or Pakistan), ever. You couldn't pay me to go.. Train toilets empty right onto the tracks? Nicccccce... George Castanza had the right idea when he went to India and NEVER used a bathroom the entire time he was there. This poor baby could have met one of the wheels of the train. It's a miracle that she was found lying "uninjured" by the track. The thought of her body striking the ground after ejecting from the poop chute of the train makes my skin crawl, sends chills up my spine and takes my breath away. Think of your ass being on the tee at a driving range.. in the crosshairs of a golf club.. that's probably what it felt like for little Bhuri all over her body, to fall from that train.

The baby girl survived an ignoble birth after slipping down the toilet bowl of a moving train onto the tracks when a pregnant woman unexpectedly gave birth while relieving herself on Tuesday.
