A Refugee throws self, wife and infant baby on train track to avoid camp

A man and his wife with their infant baby laying on the tracks with their baby as Hungarian police officers attempt to drag them away to a refugee camp.

ITV reporter James Mates, who witnesses the whole incident, reports that refugees on board the trains leaving Budapest's Keleti station believed they were going to Austria.


However, the train soon stopped at the small town of Bicske 30 miles down the line where police were waiting. Police tried to clear the train by carriages, 100 people or so at a time and push them through an underpass before backing down.

It was when riot police attempted to remove the refugees from the train that the man and woman threw themselves onto the track with their baby.
