More details from the Herald Sun

From the AP:

Police in Australia say a 6-month-old baby has miraculously survived a train hitting his stroller that had rolled onto the tracks.

The train pushed the stroller about 130 feet (40 meters) along the tracks before it stopped.

Security video footage released Friday shows the mother looking away for a moment when the stroller suddenly rolls off the edge of a station platform and onto the tracks. The mother panics as she looks back and sees the oncoming train hit the stroller, but the baby boy survived with only minor injuries.

Victoria state Police Sergeant Michael Ferwerda called Thursday’s incident a “lucky escape” and said people should be cautious in train stations.

Excerpt from The Australian:

The extraordinary CCTV footage shows the pram and baby being dragged 30 metres as the distraught mother screams at the driver to stop and stunned commuters look on..

Yet remarkably, once ambulance officers were able to retrieve the child, they found him virtually unharmed. “Apparently, he needed a nap and a feed,” quipped instensive care paramedic Jon Wright.
