A 15-month-old boy escaped with just a few cuts and bruises today after his pushchair rolled on to a railway track in Australia and was hit by a train.

The incident happened 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.

The dramatic escape came just seven months after another baby in the southern city of Melbourne survived a train striking his buggy, which had also rolled on to the tracks.

Paramedic Kate Jessop said officials were amazed the child in today's incident survived.
