A three-person family escaped unharmed after being run over by a train in London, authorities said Saturday. The mother was reportedly pushing her small child in a stroller at the Baker Street station when the wheels slipped and she fell onto the tracks. Her husband then jumped down to try to rescue the pair, but a train arrived before they could climb back out. The family reportedly huddled down into a pit between the trails as the train passed over them. “Amazingly none of them were seriously hurt, but as a precaution they were taken to hospital for check-ups,” a spokesman for the British Transport Police was quoted as saying by The Guardian. The incident is said to have sparked panic at the station, with one witness describing alarms going off as an employee shouted for crowds of people to get out of the way. Ultimately, however, the family managed to climb out from underneath the train unscathed. They have not yet been identified.
