NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities say a 2-year-old girl is safe after the stroller she was in rolled off a New York City subway platform onto the tracks.

Fire Department officials say it happened at the Jamaica Center-Parsons Boulevard stop in Jamaica, Queens at 11:26 a.m. Monday.

Witnesses say the mother had turned away briefly to put something in the trash when the strolled fell onto the empty tracks.

The mother and several other people jumped down to the tracks to rescue the child.

Officials say the mother suffered a sprained ankle; the toddler had bruises to the face. They were taken to a hospital in stable condition.
