Lucky Or Unlucky? Your Call

A newborn baby girl survived an ignoble birth after slipping down the toilet bowl of a moving Indian train onto the tracks when a pregnant woman unexpectedly gave birth while relieving herself on Tuesday.
"My delivery was so sudden," said the Bhuri Kalbi, the mother of the infant, born two months prematurely. "I did not even realize that my child had slipped from the hole in the toilet."

Most toilets on Indian trains are filthy chutes emptying directly onto the tracks.

The child is doing well but in intensive care due to the premature birth.

Some questions:
-If you were the mother, what would have went through your mind upon regaining consciousness?
-Do you think that Hinduism regards this incident differently than Christianity? (What would some differences be?)
-What kind of luck must you have for this to happen to you?
