Baby hit by train and survives

Witnesses at a suburban Melbourne station feared the worst but were stunned when the six-month-boy was hauled from the tracks with little more than a bump on his head.

The near-miss happened at Ashburton station as a city-bound train pulled into the station just after 4pm yesterday.

The baby was strapped into a three-wheeler pram that rolled forward and toppled on to the tracks. [...]

Witnesses watched in horror, fearing the baby had no hope.

But he was safely back in his mother's arms when ambulance officers arrived minutes later.

It's in portuguese, but shows that seatbelt saved the boy.
