A baby has escaped serious injury in Australia when his pram rolled onto the tracks as a train approached Ashburton station in Melbourne, Australia.
The train driver activated emergency brakes to slow the 250 ton train as it approached the six-month-old baby during near peak hour travel on Friday afternoon.
The baby miraculously only suffered a small bump to the head when the pram was pushed 40 metres along the tracks to the shock of witnesses and the baby's mother, video below of the baby being hit by a train shows.
"The train driver will have been extremely shocked by this incident, and when we know a small child is involved, then it's even worse than some of the other things we've seen," a transport Victoria spokesperson said of the baby being run over by train video.
"[The driver] used his training well in this situation and he has applied the brakes as hard as possible.
"But of course the best situation is that it never happens, so if everyone could take that advice - hold on to the prams, don't ever let go."
Authorites in Australia are now urging parents to make sure prams are fitted with restraints in the wake of the baby in Victoria, Australia incident.
Spokesman Dr Mark Stokes says it is almost certain the restraint on the baby's pram saved the child's life.
"The child was strapped in. Had the child not been strapped in when the train did connect with the pram, the child would have been dislodged from the pram and possibly rolled over by the train," he said.
The young infant was rushed to a nearby childrens hospital. The miracle Australian baby was discharged soon after. His mother was also taken to hospital suffering shock.
