    This is highly suspicious! Babies just don't fall out of women. Anyone who has given birth or experienced birth will be able to tell you that it is highly likely that this women flushed her baby preemie or not.

    Sad.

    common sense tells me an umbilical cord would have kept the baby connected, did they investigate the scissors found in the bathroom

    AMTRAK trains still had this type of toilet into the 1990s and may well still.

    The woman had her family and husband on board the train...doesn't seem like the right scenario for purposely doing this, unless they didn't know about the pregnancy and she was desperate to conceal it.

    I know that train bathrooms aren't spacious...I could see how it could happen, but it is highly unlikely.

    She might be on welfare. Baby's do infact tend to fall out of women when they are on welfare.

    Well, they didn't say that the baby just fell out of her--only that she gave birth unexpectedly. She may have gone into the bathroom because she was feeling pains, and the baby may have been born relatively quickly (not "falling out" quickly, but relatively quickly--it does happen). If the woman was sitting on the toilet while it happened, it would have been very easy for it to fall in. And she didn't "flush it away"--the hole in the toilet just opened to the track below. Think of it like an old outhouse--not like an airplane lavatory.

    As for the umbilical cord, that would have been attached to the placenta which would have come out soon after the baby. When the baby fell out, the force of gravity probably just pulled the placenta out with it. And that would be a possible reason for the blood that was on the mother afterwards.

    EDIT: I'm not saying it isn't possible that the woman did try to abandon the baby--just that there are other possibilities.
