According to Australia's Herald Sun, the six-month-old boy -- who was thankfully strapped into his "pram" -- was dragged about 90 feet, but suffered only a minor bump on his head. This all happened yesterday in the Melbourne suburb of Ashburton, the newspaper says. It adds that:
Intensive care paramedic Jon Wright said they arrived to find the six-month-old baby being comforted by his mother.
"It appears that the baby was strapped into his pram which has rolled forward onto the tracks and into the path of an oncoming train,' he said.
"Fortunately the train was slowing as it pulled into the station. The pram was pushed along the tracks for about 30m.
"The baby received a bump to his head and was distressed when we arrived. Luckily he was strapped into his pram at the time, which probably saved his life,' Mr Wright said.
The baby is now back home after being treated at Royal Children's Hospital.
