Miracle escape for rail track baby

Posted Thursday, 27 May, 2010 by bevans in Victorian Rail News

A 15-month-old boy has escaped with just a few cuts and bruises after his pushchair rolled on to a railway track in Australia and was hit by a train.
The incident happened in Melbourne when the baby's grandmother looked away for a moment.

Security camera footage shows the pushchair rolling over the edge of the platform just as the train pulls into the station - it was pushed a short distance down the tracks before the train came to a halt.

Paramedic Kate Jessop said officials are amazed the child survived.

Queensland Premier Anna Bligh has faced an angry demonstration of rail workers concerned about their jobs as the state prepares to sell off Queensland Rail.

The premier was confronted by a loud, agitated crowd of more than 100 Queensland Rail employees and unionists as she arrived at a community cabinet meeting at Emu Park, east of Rockhampton, on Sunday.

Demonstrators shouted abuse and cries of "Queensland Rail not for sale" in reference to the government's planned asset sales, as she made her way through the crowd.
