Watch heart-stopping moment woman and child miraculously cheat death after stepping off moving train

This is the terrifying moment a woman and her daughter were feared dead after stepping off of a moving train as it pulled into a station.

The train was arriving at Charbagh railway station in northern India when a woman is seen emerging from a carriage door with the child in her arms. But as she goes to step down onto the platform something, thought to be her hair or clothing, gets caught and she is dragged down between the train and the platform.

Passengers and staff on the platform rush to help and scream for the train to stop, which it does.

Unbelievably both the woman and child escaped without serious injury.
