A family-of-three miraculously survived after ducking underneath an oncoming train when they fell onto the tracks on the London Underground.
A woman pushing her baby in a buggy slipped on the platform at Baker Street Tube Station last night and the child’s father jumped down to save them.
As the train hurtled towards them, the family were able to duck into a pit below the track and the train passed over their heads without injuring them.

The mother was walking along the platform pushing her child in a pram, while looking up at the indicator board just before 10.15pm on Friday, British Transport Police (BTP) said.
She didn’t realise how close to the edge she was when the buggy wheels slipped over the edge and dragged her down with it.

The woman and the buggy fell onto the tracks before the father dived down after them.
British Transport Police said: ‘All three were extremely fortunate in being able to move into a pit under the track and the train passed safely over the top of them.
‘Amazingly none of them were seriously hurt, but as a precaution they were taken to hospital for check-ups.’
Nigel Holness, director of network operations at Transport for London, said: ‘We understand this incident was an accident but it does underline the need for all customers to remain behind the yellow line when waiting for trains or walking along the platform.’
