WATCH: Dad Leaves Baby on Train After Stepping Off to Smoke


A surveillance video released by a transit authority in Cleveland shows a man stepping off a train to smoke a cigarette and then frantically chasing after it when it leaves the station with his baby on board.

The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority released a statement about the Jan. 12 incident in East Cleveland on Wednesday.

The statement says the train’s driver learned about the baby on board before it arrived at the next station, which was just a minute away. RTA officials responded and quickly returned to the station where the father was reunited with the child.



  1. He must have been desperate for a cigarette. But, you’re probably not allowed to smoke in a train station either, and he should have taken his baby with him in any case.
