A mother was separated from her infant child when she tried to leave a train with her baby’s pushchair and the train doors closed between them.
Footage from the train as well as from inside underground station shows the mum standing inside the crowded carriage with the pushchair nearby.
After arriving at Luban Road Station, in Nanning, capital of South China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, the mum tries to get off the train backwards while pulling her baby and the pushchair.
However, the clip shows the train operator closing the doors prematurely, forcing the mum to move her hands as the barriers also shut between her and her baby - whose gender was not reported.
The worried mum is then left wandering in circles on the platform of the station on Nanning Metro’s Line 1 as the train pulls away.
Fortunately for the woman, kind passengers inside took care of her infant and a couple exit the train with the pushchair at the very next station.
They contacted station staff, who informed the mum that her baby was in safe hands.
She took the next train to the station and they were successfully reunited with one another.
The mum said she was in a rush to get off the train and did not prepare for the exit before squeezing through the crowded carriage.
She thanked the kind passengers for caring for her child in her brief absence.
