left to die on assam rail track infant survives after two trains pass over

Guwahati, Oct 25: A four-month-old boy was left to die on a railway track in Assam's Golaghat on Monday morning.

 
The infant kicked and screamed each time a train passed over him throughout the night, but he was found alive by local villagers the next morning.
 
Villagers said, some of them had heard a child screaming in the dead of night, as two trains passed through the area, but none of them dared to come out because of rain.
 
The infant was found shivering and his body almost bluish the next morning.

For the time being, Afsara Begum, a local resident has decided to adopt the infant. “I've given him cow milk and have taken him to the hospital for treatment.  We will keep him with us.”, said the lady.
