Indian mother tries to flush newborn down plane toilet

Some things that occur within airplane lavatories should perhaps be kept to the people involved...and no, we're not talking about the 'mile high club'.

One example would be that of the Indian mother who tried, following an onboard, lavatory-based birth, to flush her newborn baby down the toilet of the major international passenger plane on which she was traveling. According to the Telegraph:
The infant was found stuck in the toilet after the plane landed in Amritsar, northern India, and was rushed to hospital still attached to the toilet bowl, police and doctors told the Press Trust of India news agency.
HP Singh, a doctor at the Escorts Hospital near the airport, said that a team of surgeons used a saw cutter to remove the newborn's head from the toilet.
The 22-year old mother was reported to have left the plane immediately following its landing. Newspapers have further reported that the mother was an unmarried university student who had just completed a degree in medicine abroad. [Telegraph]
