Warning: this footage is pretty shocking. Baby hit by train and survives - video released:
A security video camera has captured shocking footage of a train running over a baby in a pram.
CCTV footage obtained by the Herald Sun shows the pram rolling away from the baby’s mother, tipping onto the tracks and being hit by the train.
Witnesses fearing the worst were stunned when the six-month-boy was hauled from the tracks with little more than a bump on his head.
The pram was carried 30m as the desperate driver tried to pull up the 250 tonne train. It ploughed into the pram at about 35km/h, dragging the child along beneath the front carriage.
