Austrian police: Train's slipstream leads to infant's death

October 04, 2017 - 10:14 AM

VIENNA - Austrian police say a 1-year old infant has died after the slipstream caused by a speeding freight train pulled her baby carriage off a rail platform and onto the tracks.

A police statement says the accident occurred Wednesday morning on the station of Puch bei Hallein, near the western city of Salzburg, as the mother was occupied with her other child, a 3-year old.

The baby was rushed to a hospital but died there of her injuries.

Police say they are investigating.
