May 02, 2005 18:09 IST

A child, delivered by a woman in the washroom of a running train, slipped down the toilet hole and was later found alive on the tracks between Khatoli and Mansuri railway stations, 15 km from Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh, police said on Monday.

The police said Shabnam was travelling from Meerut to Saharanpur with her brother on Sunday. She developed labour pain and went to the toilet where she delivered.

The child, however, fell down onto the tracks. A search was launched when the train stopped at Mansurpur station, they said.

The child was found on the tracks and was handed over to its mother, who continued her journey to Saharanpur with her 'miracle' child, they added.
