What an entrance!

In India, most train toilets have holes leading directly onto the tracks. When 33-year-old Bhuri Kalbi used the train bathroom, she unexpectedly gave birth. "My delivery was so sudden," Kalbi says, "I did not even realize that my child had slipped from the hole in the toilet and onto the railway tracks." She fainted for a few minutes, but when she woke up, she told her family and the train was stopped. The baby girl was on the railway track from 1.5 to 2 hours. She was found close to the tracks with her umbilical chord, uninjured but blue from cold. While she is recovering "quite well," she is in intensive care for her two-month premature birth. Source

I am glad the baby is doing well, and what a bizarre life entrance.

That is one unbelievable story! Wow!

Now, I've heard of a woman who didn't know she was pregnant til the day she gave birth... how is that for shocking?

I'm feeling some pain in my stomach... and the 'POOF' and "WHAAAA!"

"What's that?"

"A baby just came out of you".

Are you really, really sure this is a true story? It has BS written all over it.

satire and theology: yep.
r.e.h: But this lady knew she was pregnant.
baba doodilus: I was inclined to be skeptical too when I first found it on Reuters. But the source I included is from BBC News. I usually find them pretty reliable. Judging from their quotes, they seemed to have picked the story up from the Times of India. which I tracked down to this site: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/Foetus_slips_out_of_moving_train_safe/articleshow/2820840.cms.
If it is a hoax, I googled it pretty extensively and I haven't found it debunked yet.
