A video of a boy falling through the gap between a train and the platform is a source of nightmares for several parents. 2-year-old Ayden, accompanied by his sister and grandparents, was trying to board a train when he vanished between the gap. Video shows the panic-stricken grandparents frantically waving their hands trying to signal the driver to not start the train.
Ayden was safely pulled out from the gap in time.
The recording, taken by a security camera at Cronulla Station in 2016, was released by Sydney Trains as part of an awareness campaign to highlight the dangers at railway stations.
Speaking to 9news.com, grandfather John Brewster said, "It took years off my life. I'll never forget it."
"It happened that bloody quick. We were running because it was raining, we'd had an ice-cream then we were taking the train because Ayden loves trains.
The video was released as a holiday warning ahead of Easter Sunday.
According to Daily Mirror, over 220 children found themselves in the same situation as Ayden on the Sydney trains network in 2016.
