A terrifying moment for any parent was caught on tape, as a gust of wind blew a baby's pram off a London Underground platform and onto the train tracks. The video, taken by a Transport Police security camera, shows a man leaving the pram at the bottom of the stairs while going to get a second pram. The unattended baby carriage then rolls onto the tracks. Shorlty afterwards, a woman, who police believe to be the baby's mother, is seen jumping onto the tracks to retrieve the child, still trapped into the pram. Police say it all happened seconds before a train pulled into the station. Police are hoping to identify the people, to ensure the child wasn't injured in the July 23rd incident.
