Baby Oh My Baby!

A baby hits the rails and suffers a bump on his head.

"A six-month-old baby fell beneath a train as its pushchair rolled off a station platform in Melbourne - but survived with just a bump to its head. The baby's mother let go off the pushchair just as the train came into the station then watched in horror as the pushchair was run over," according to The Independent. CCTV footage of the tot’s incredible escape has been posted on YouTube. The child’s mother is seen rocking with her head in her hands as the train steams into the station dashing the child and fallen pushchair from sight. Australian news sites report that ambulance officers found the baby virtually unharmed with only a bruise to his head.
