There is amazing video of a baby stroller rolling off a loading platform just seconds before an incoming train. The infant was struck by the train, but luckily the train was nearly stopped. The infant was thrown nearly 100 yards down the track, but remarkably only suffered minor injuries.
This is a reminder to everyone — especially parents — that tragedy can strike in a matter of seconds. Trains and locomotives are particularly dangerous. You can learn more about train and railroad crossing dangers at our raiload accident web site or this recent blog post.
