Surveillance footage from Windermere Station in Cleveland, Ohio shows a panicked father chasing down a train after it pulled off with his baby inside.
The footage of the January incident surfaced on Monday. It shows the father entering the train carrying a baby basket. The train is pretty empty aside from one other male sitting near its doors.
The man can be seen placing the baby basket on a chair and sitting beside the child before adjusting his or her blanket.
Next, he stands up and removes his backpack and what appears to be a baby bag, and looks under nearby seats. Then, the father exits the train leaving his baby and his belongings unattended.
According to Daily Mail, when he exits the train, he can be seen asking a bystander for a light and sparking a cigarette.
Suddenly, the clip jumps to the passenger on board knocking on the window appearing to tell the father to come on. They both run over to the train doors, but it’s too late.
The doors shut with the father on the outside of them knocking and the passenger on the inside of them knocking. As the train departs, the father can be seen running after it.
Although the clip ends there, Cleveland 19 reports that the train conductor was informed of what happened and was able to reunite the man and his baby.
Neither the passenger nor the baby were in danger during the occurrence.
According to Cleveland 19, the conductor told police that the father of the child had been threatening her, but those claims proved baseless.
However, she was reportedly “coached” by her supervisor for not following communication protocol during the incident.
