Commuters in a West Philadelphia train station leaped into action today after a woman’s baby stroller containing her 14-month-old daughter fell onto the train tracks and the mother climbed down to rescue the child.

The incident, captured on surveillance video, occurred at 12:46 p.m. at the 56 th Street station on the Market-Frankford line of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) transit system.

Video from the station’s surveillance camera showed the woman standing in front of the stroller on the eastbound platform at the elevated station. It was not clear from the video what the woman was doing, but the stroller slowly started to roll away from her, and it kept going until it fell over the edge of the platform and landed on the tracks about four feet below.

The woman climbed down onto the tracks, and the video showed several other passengers rushing to her aid.
