The father jumped down to help and the three of them moved into a pit beneath the track as a train passed over them. None of them was seriously hurt but they were taken to hospital for checks, British Transport Police said.
Commuters who witnessed the incident took to social media to record their shock.One user said: "When pushchair with kids and mum end up on the track in front of the train you were just about to board. "Thankfully all unharmed. The driver is also ok and he did a superb job, along with a chap from the depot that was on his way to work. What a night."
