An infant at the Mathura railway station in Uttar Pradesh, India, miraculously escaped injury despite falling between the platform and tracks.

The video of the incident has gone viral through a variety of sources. It shows the unidentified child lying in the gap between the platform and tracks as the train passes over her.

Luckily, the train never came in contact with her at any point as she lay prone next to the tracks,  the Indian Express reports .

The video shows several people jumping into immediate action as soon as the train passes and the child is lifted from the tracks after the train missed her by inches, stuff.co.nz reports. The child appears to be handed to family members who are standing on the platform.

Although the baby is seen crying in the video, it appears to be unhurt.

It’s an amazing, miraculous escape.
