Baby, Stroller, Train: Oh My! (Unbelievable Video)

After rolling off the platform, the baby’s stroller train collision looked bad. Somehow, the baby’s stroller absorbed most of the damage as the train came to a stop.

It was the only video horrifying enough to get some airtime after the ‘balloon boy’ saga. Closed circuit television in Australia caught the unthinkable. A mother tending to her baby pushed the stroller up against a nearby wall where it stood for a few seconds. Those few moments were just long enough for it to begin rolling to the edge of the platform, and then over!

It was just the mother’s luck that an incoming train was approaching at that very minute. You can see from the footage that the baby goes over the edge just in front of the train. The mother’s reaction is that of complete shock and disbelief. She stands there helpless for a minute looking through the crack between the moving cars and the edge of the platform—but what could she do?

The train finally comes to a stop roughly 100 ft. down the track. Officials say the baby only suffered a cut to the forehead, and that if it weren’t for the mangled stroller, it would have ended much differently.

Wow, what brand was it? Not that I plan on having my kid make his way ‘down under’ a moving train anytime soon, but that’s one sturdy stroller!

Anyway, authorities report that the mother didn’t do anything wrong, and therefore won’t be charged.

You absolutely must see the video of the baby’s stroller train collision below.

    I’m not sure, but it looks like the woman was on her cellphone. If that is the case, she did nothing wrong?

    The stroller did NOT stop the train, many cars went past. There is no way a stroller (or even a car) would stop a train. It is just that it landed in the middle, between the two rails, and was not on either of the rails.

    No where in this article or any article does it say that the stroller stopped the train.

    Thank god the baby is alive and seemingly uninjured.

    Not sure what I would do in that situation, but I can’t believe I would react like those onlookers did, just walking away! that’s just cold.

    The onlookers weren’t walking away. They were turning around in horror. All of them ran to help with the mother, once the composed themselves.

    Give all the GLORY TO GOD people. If you really look you can actually see a shaddowy figure moving around and protecting the baby as it goes over the edge. A Guarding Angel is protecting that Baby.
