This is the moment a reckless mother puts her child in the firing line of an oncoming train in an attempt to avoid ticket collectors.
The terrifying CCTV shows the unnamed woman lowering her daughter onto the train tracks in Buenos Aires.
As the train steams into the station, the little girl manages to squeeze herself under the platform – avoiding certain death by a matter of millimetres.
Concerned members of public ran to the edge of the train, expecting the worst but miraculously the child wasn’t injured, just shaken up by the ordeal.
Guillermo D’Abenigno of Buenos Aires Trains told The Washington Post: “We quickly cut the electrical current to avoid any accident.
“You couldn’t hear anything. We feared the worst – that the girl was dead, torn to pieces under the train.
“It was a mishap with a little luck.”
