LONDON - British Transport police have released shocking footage of a pram rolling onto the train tracks of the London Underground, with a child inside.

CCTV footage showed a man leaving the child in the pram at the foot of the stairs between two platforms at London's Goodge Street station. A gust of strong wind then pushed the pram onto the tracks, reported British media.

After the pram fell onto the tracks, a woman was seen running and jumping onto the tracks to save the child, pram and bags.
