So scary

In a horrifying moment captured by CCTV footage, a little boy was spotted falling down the gap between the platform and train at Sydenham Station.

As the train approaches, the little boy can be seen waiting with his mum behind the yellow lines patiently.

However, when he attempts to alight the train he falls straight down the narrow gap between the train and the platform.

Commuters immediately rushed to the boy’s aid and alerted the guard to warn the driver not to move the train forward.

Thankfully, the little boy was rescued and was shaken but unharmed.

The video was issued by the NSW government as a reminder to parents to stay vigilant during the upcoming school holiday period and maintain close supervision of their children while travelling on the Sydney Trains network.
