Travelling with toddlers and a baby in tow is very difficult and hats off to the mothers who do this on a regular basis. A woman travelling with two toddlers and a baby in a pram had a heart stopping moment when the pram with the baby strapped to it rolled from a platform onto the railway tracks. The baby was rescued moments before a train arrived onto the tracks by the mother and the assembled people who climbed down to help the hapless mother. The incident took place at the West Ryde Station in Sydney, Australia and was captured on CCTV. The CCTV footage shows the mother being caught off guard while she was travelling in an elevator with her three children.
The mother had a firm hold on the pram and on one of her kids, while the third kid lagged behind and was busy pressing numbers in the elevator panel. As the mother exited the elevator with the baby in the pram and one of her kids the elevator door started closing with her elder child still inside. She hastily retreated to retrieve her elder child and let go of the pram for a split second, upon which the pram promptly rolled off the platform onto the railway tracks.

The harrowing and nightmarish incident prompted Transport for New South Wales to issue fresh guidelines on travelling with prams and young children on their website. Fortunately, both the mother and the baby are safe and unhurt.
