Fox News: A six-month-old boy has miraculously survived a train slamming into his stroller after it rolled off an Australian railway platform.

The collision happened as a city-bound service pulled up to Ashburton station, in a Melbourne suburb.

A security video shows the boy's mother taking her hands off the stroller's handles and failing to notice as it slowly edged toward the tracks.

The mom suddenly spots the baby stroller picking up speed and she rushes with outstretched arms to try to save her young child, but the stroller tips over the edge of the platform and the baby slams onto the tracks head first.

Before the boy can be rescued, the train powers past, horrifying the mother and other waiting passengers.

The footage ends with the frantic mom and a man running up to the driver, who has just stopped the 250-ton vehicle.

Australia's Herald Sun said the train ploughed into the stroller, dragging the child along beneath the train's front car.

But the boy was hauled from the tracks with little more than a bump on his head.

Paramedic Jon Wright said the six-month-old just "needed a feed and a nap".

"Luckily, he was strapped into his pram at the time, which probably saved his life. I think the child's extremely lucky," the paramedic told the paper. "Fortunately the train was slowing as it pulled into the station."

The wind is blowing you can see it. Normally she & the kid probably would have been fine but the wind clearly is blowing & probably helped not only push it but speed it up towards the track. Noone hasnt had a similar or potentially similar event happen or that they would have reacted any better. You can see the wind blowing hats as soon as they come into camera & a leaf lands on the camera.
