Sometimes we need a reminder that miracles do exist… maybe this proof was a little too extreme.

Miracle! 6-month-old boy survives after stroller plummets into path of oncoming train

Source: NY Daily News

An Australian mom watched in horror as the stroller holding her 6-month-old boy rolled into the path of an oncoming train but the tot miraculously survived with barely a scratch.

Security video footage released Friday shows the baby’s mother looking away for a moment as the pram suddenly rolls off the edge and overturns onto the tracks as the train rushes into a Melbourne station.

The stroller was dragged about 130 feet along the tracks as the desperate conductor tried to stop the train.

“Fortunately the train was slowing as it pulled into the station,” said Jon Wright, a paramedic who treated the little boy at the scene of the accident.

“The baby received a bump to his head and was distressed when we arrived. Luckily he was strapped into his pram at the time, which probably saved his life.”

Michael Ferwerda, a Victoria state police sergeant, called Thursday’s incident a “lucky escape” and said people should be cautious in train stations.
