A little girl has been rescued after falling through the narrow gap between the train and the platform at a railway station in China. The toddler lost her footing and slipped through the gap while attempting to board the carriage with her mother on Tuesday in Beijing.
Her mother was seen glued to the phone prior to the accident at about 3:35 pm local time, Chinese media reported.
The pair was supposed to take the D37 train, which travels from Beijing to Dalian North in Liaoning province, according to Beijing Youth Daily.
Video footage shows the desperate mother kneeling on the side of the platform, trying to reach her trapped daughter through the narrow space.
‘Raise your hand, give your hand to mommy,’ she called, but to no avail.
At one point she attempted to squeeze through the gap herself but was stopped by station workers.
The little girl was saved after a station worker squeezed himself through the gap to reach her while others were seen pushing the doors of the train to make space.
The toddler went for a checkup at the station and was found to have some swelling on her head, according to the report.
