MELBOURNE – A woman accidentally let her baby’s stroller roll in front of a train – but the boy had almost no injuries!
The unidentified woman is seen waiting on the train platform, in a closed-circuit video released by police. As she momentarily lets go to adjust something, the stroller rolls directly over the edge and onto the tracks. The mother runs to grab it, but just then, a train pulls into the station!
The train pushed the stroller almost 100 feet before coming to a complete stop. Miraculously, the child was almost unharmed!
Paramedic Jon Wright said the baby received only minor injuries. “Fortunately the train was slowing as it pulled into the station. The baby received a bump to his head and was distressed when we arrived. Luckily he was strapped into his [stroller] at the time, which probably saved his life.”
Police are asking train users to view this as a lesson in keeping safe near train platforms.
