VIDEO: Mom rescues baby from SEPTA tracks
A woman rescued her baby from the tracks at the 56th Street SEPTA station after the stroller holding the 14-month-old girl rolled off the platform Wednesday afternoon.
The life-saving rescue was captured on surveillance video.
The woman quickly jumped down onto the tracks, removed her baby from the stroller and placed the young girl onto the platform.
A good Samaritan also jumped down on the tracks to help the woman get back up after she retrieved the stroller.
The incident occurred about 12:45 p.m. at the West Philadelphia train station. The child was treated for a cut sustained during the fall.
A train reportedly was about a minute up the tracks when the baby’s stroller rolled off the platform.
It was seven weeks ago that South Philadelphia resident Christopher Knafelc was hailed as a hero for saving a stranger from the tracks at SEPTA’s Cecil B. Moore Avenue station in North Philadelphia.
