Toddler train tracks: Child blown by wind onto tracks almost dies

A toddler barely survived after his stroller ended up on the train tracks from a big gust of wind. On Tuesday, NBC News shared a short video and explained what happened. This all happened in London at a subway train track. A woman had to rush to save this baby.

The child was in a stroller a little bit away from the tracks. A gust of wind blew the stroller right onto the tracks. This is a reminder of why you should always hold onto your stroller or attach it to something. As a parent, you can never be too safe. It is also important that if you are not pushing it that you put the brakes on so that it won't be going anywhere. The brakes could have prevented this accident.

Mark Lawrie the Chief Inspector spoke out about it all saying, "This was a frightening incident, not just for the scale of the danger the child was exposed to, but also because the woman then put her own life on the line by going onto the tracks." They both could have lost their lives if the train would have come through at that moment.

This all went down back in July, but the video just came out. It shows the stroller on the tracks. As it hits the tracks, it tips over putting the child face first. Then the woman rushes out to grab the stroller and hands it off to a man who is with her to check on the child. She even takes a bit longer to get off the tracks because she is grabbing another item.

Parents remember to check the brakes and hold onto your stroller. This could happen in a street or anywhere else. Always make sure you are keeping your baby safe.
