Toddler rescued from Brooklyn subway tracks

A good Samaritan is being credited with rescuing a toddler in Brooklyn after a gust of wind knocked the boy's stroller off a subway platform and onto the tracks just before a train rolled in.

It happened at the Van Siclen Avenue subway station on Fulton Street just before 1 p.m. Tuesday.

A witness tells the Daily News the boy's mother had just turned her back and was tending to her other children when the sudden wind gust pushed the stroller off the elevated platform.

The witness says an unidentified man quickly jumped down onto the tracks and hauled the toddler and stroller and himself back onto the platform just before the train arrived.

Authorities say the boy was taken to Brookdale Hospital where he was treated for minor injuries.
