Pram (Stroller) Falls onto Train Tracks, Toddler OK


Security video shows a stroller that rolls off of a train platform and falls between the rails of train tracks in Australia.

After rushing to catch her stroller that rolled off of a train platform and fell between the rails of train tracks at the Ashburton station, a mom had to wait for rescuers to access her 6-month-old boy who was in the stroller and dragged about 130 feet by the train. The train was traveling about 22 mph when it first hit the stroller. Investigators say that properly applied straps by the mother kept the child safely protected in the stroller in between the rails. The toddler only suffered a bump on the forehead.

Strollers are known as prams in Australia.

  1. OMG! That had to be a HORRIBLE feeling for the mother to see what was happening to her baby! It’s a miracle that the child survived!

  2. She’s doubly lucky: first, her child is fine and second, she wasn’t in the US where she’d have been charged with felony child endangerment along with other idiotic “crimes” for a simple accident.
