In a miracle of sorts, a newborn delivered by a woman in a moving train near Haflong in Assam.
Nomita Longmailai (36), passenger of the Guwahati Silchar fast passenger train had labour pains while the train was moving.
A group of passengers including students of B.sc Nursing College Dibrugarh extended their helping hands to deliver the baby girl. Later, the woman has been sent to Haflong Civil Hospital. People named the baby girl ‘Angel’.
Family members of the woman also informed that no doctors were there in the sub-centre in the area (Subhojai, Dauthuhaja – around 40 km away from Haflong) and also said that the village road is unmotorable, that’s why situation compelled them to board the train.
