Child In Stroller Gets Stuck Between Train Doors Before Dad Can Get On Board

Most of us know what it’s like to rush to get somewhere and relying on public transportation to get us there. I know I try to get on the train until the very last second before the doors close. If it means choosing between running to catch a bus or getting through the doors of a train, I choose the train!

But there is some danger associated to rushing for transportation. You can trip and fall on a crowded platform or in the middle of the street, or even knock someone over and cause them injury.

In the following clip, one father thinks that he can catch a train with just a few second to spare. Of course, he doesn’t know this, and just as he’s entering, the doors begin to shut.

The doors don’t close all the way, and thank goodness they don’t! The man’s child is in a stroller, and he becomes caught between the mechanical doors. Luckily, though, he is uninjured.

Eventually, the doors open again and the dad is able to get the entire stroller (and himself!) into the train.

What a close call! Can you imagine if this ever happened to you and your child? Do you think this dad was a little reckless? Let us know in the comments!
