Video: Baby in Stroller Falls Onto SEPTA Tracks


A 14-month-old baby fell into the tracks at the 56th Street Station on the Market-Frankford Line yesterday afternoon, after her stroller, which was not in a locked position, rolled away from the platform. (Her mother, 28, had become distracted.) Within a few moments, her mother jumped into the tracks and lifted her out. The infant suffered minor facial injuries and was brought to CHOP.

19 seconds after a bystander hit the SEPTA emergency call button, an incoming train from 60th Street was halted. Absent that, it might have arrived within a minute. [Daily News]
