    Video: Baby makes miracle escape after train hits pram in Australia

    Video: Baby makes miracle escape after train hits pram in Australia
    A 6-month-old baby had a miracle escape after his pram rolled onto the tracks and into the path of an oncoming train at a railway station in Melbourne.

    Security video footage released on Friday shows the baby's mother looking away for a moment as the pram suddenly rolls off the edge of a station platform and onto the tracks at Ashburton station.

    The mother looks back and panics as she watches the oncoming train hit the pram, dragging it about 130 feet along the track as the desperate driver tried to stop the train.

    Miraculously, the baby boy survived with only minor injuries, including a bump to his head.

    This is just ... wow ! The people at the station all just froze, except for the mom who is obviously hysterical. The baby is fine! Being strapped into the pram saved him, the article saidi .

    Wow. Being a father now these types of stories freak me out. Just imagining being in that type of situation gets my heart pounding.

    That's a pretty amazing story. Sometimes when I stand at the skytrain platform I wonder what would happen if someone accidentally fell in just as the train was coming. Can you hide in the middle and not be crushed, or how would that work?

    The video freaked me out mostly because it just goes to show you how quick something can happen. She turned her back for one second and the stroller rolled away. How fatey is that?

    THAT BABY IS RACIST!

    Sorry, I was having a DP flashback.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
