Accident at an underground station - level 3
This CCTV footage shows the moment a child in a buggy was blown onto the tracks at a London Underground station, just seconds before a train arrived.
In the frightening footage released by British Transport Police, a couple is seen leaving the pushchair at the bottom of the stairs close to a platform while they went to assist other family members. But a strong gust of wind blew the unattended buggy, carrying the child on to the tracks with an incoming train moments away from arriving.
After realising what had happened, the child's panic-stricken mother can be seen rushing on to the tracks to carry the baby and the pushchair back onto the platform.
Police are attempting to trace the couple involved to ensure the child did not suffer any injuries in the incident.
Difficult words: CCTV footage (security camera video), buggy (pushchair), gust (sudden strong rush of wind), attempt (try), trace (find), ensure (make sure).
