A British mother accidentally caused chaos after she reportedly “forgot her baby” on a train.
She was separated from her child at Peckham Rye station in South East London at around 5 pm yesterday.
A South Eastern spokesperson confirmed that it had received a call for help from a mother “to advise she had become separated from her child at Peckham Rye station (on Wednesday) evening”.
“The unaccompanied child was helped off the train at the next stop (Nunhead) by station colleagues while the mother travelled on the next service to collect the child.
“Both are safe and well, and the service was back on the move with a five-minute delay.”
Passengers were surprised to discover the reason for the delay was due to a woman forgetting her child.
“The last reason I expected my train to be delayed at its stop was because ‘a mother left her baby on the train at the previous stop’ and they’ve had to hold it there so she could come and collect it,” one user wrote.
“I mean how do you forget YOUR BABY.. A WHOLE BABY.”
