A mother and baby were waiting on the platform of the West Philadelphia train station on Thursday when the stroller carrying the woman’s 14-month-old daughter slid down the platform and fell onto the train tracks.
Survelliance cameras captured the scary event, as the stroller started drifting away from the mother, plummeting approximately six feet onto the tracks.
In the video, the mother appears to be in shock, momentarily paralyzed and looking at the baby for signs of life. The mom then sees her daughter start to get up, jumps down onto the tracks and lifts her daughter into the air and into the arms of another passenger.
The baby reportedly suffered a gash to her forehead and was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital. Lucky for the tot, she landed on the outter rail, which is not electrified.
According to ABC News, trains run about every eight minutes at that particular train stop. The child was lucky she didn’t fall while a train was approaching the station.
Another bystander, who witnessed the accident, pressed the emergency call button, alerting emergency crews and train personal to halt service and send help.
