Footage Captures Little Boy Falling Through Train Gap

One mother is thankful for the kindness of strangers after her son falls through a train gap.


It was a heart-stopping moment at this train station in Australia as passengers wait to board the next train. As the doors opened and people began to walk onto the train, you can see a mother and her young son walk towards the door. And then, in the blink of an eye, the boy falls down into the gap between the platform and the train.

If you’ve ever been a passenger on a train, you’ve probably seen or heard warnings that say ‘Mind The Gap.’ These warnings may seem silly, but it is incidents like this that remind us why the signs are there in the first place.

As soon as the boy fell, you can see his mother begin to furiously wave her hands to draw the attention of the conductor. She wanted to be sure that the train did not move with her son still underneath.

Thankfully, a group of Good Samaritans was able to quickly reach down and pull the little boy to safety. All of this happened in a matter of seconds. Officials in Australia released the video ahead of summer travel to remind parents to keep a watchful eye and hand on their children.

In the hustle and bustle of daily life, we can often forget the everyday dangers that surround us. This powerful video serves as a reminder to always be aware of your environmental surroundings, especially in regards to your kids.
