A 15-month-old boy escaped with just a few cuts and bruises today after his pushchair rolled on to a railway track in Australia and was hit by a train.
The haunting incident happened today as the baby’s grandmother looked away for a moment.
Security camera footage shows the pushchair rolling over the edge of the platform at Tooronga station just as the train pulls in.
It was pushed a short distance down the tracks before the train came to a halt. Investigators said the train driver was travelling slowly and applied the emergency brakes but still dragged the pushchair between eight and 10 metres.
The dramatic escape came just seven months after another baby in the southern city of Melbourne survived a train striking his buggy, which had also rolled on to the tracks.
