Family of 3 run over by London subway train, escape unhurt

LONDON — British police say a family of three had an amazing escape after falling into the path of a London subway train.

The British Transport Police force says a mother pushing a child in stroller tumbled off a platform onto the tracks at Baker Street station, and the child's father jumped down to help them.

The force said in a statement Saturday that "when they saw a train coming, all three were extremely fortunate in being able to move into a pit under the track and the train passed safely over the top of them."

Police say "amazingly" none of the family members was seriously hurt. They were taken to a hospital as a precaution.

Services on the London Underground's Jubilee Line were disrupted after the incident on Friday evening.
