Baby survives after being run over by train

A baby has had an amazing escape after his pushchair rolled off a station platform and under a train in Australia.

The train had slowed right down as it pulled into the station and the six-month-old baby suffered only a bump to his head.

CCTV of the incident was released to local media. It shows the pram rolling off the platform while the baby's mother looks on in horror.

Victoria state Police Sergeant Michael Ferwerda called the incident a 'lucky escape' and said people should be cautious in train stations.

Dimitri O'Donnell reports.
