Here's what happened: The grandpa was out with his wife, granddaughter, and the baby's mom waiting for a train when he let go of the stroller, unaware that the platform had a slight slope.

The stroller inched forward and then plunged onto the tracks -- yet in spite of an oncoming train, Grandpa jumped onto the tracks himself and flung the baby back to safety. See below:

Wow -- you've gotta love this guy's super-fast reflexes! They'd be impressive for someone in their thirties, and this guy was 62 years old. And the fact is, good reflexes can really come in handy when you've got kids -- in an emergency or otherwise.

My mom complains that she can barely keep up with her 5-year-old granddaughter -- and while my dad has more energy, he still poops out after an hour or so of her tearing around.

So, hats off to this grandpa for responding so quickly and saving the day!

Have you ever had a scary near-accident with your kids?
