She saved herself. Me as mother would have tried to save my child.
I don't think we can assume she didn't want or try to save her child. We don't know where on the track they fell, how close the train was etc ....I think this poor woman deserves our sympathy, she does not deserve to be ridiculed by people who did not go through the experience or see what happened.

Anyone thinking she tried to save herself and left her child to die has only read foreign new sources. She was hospitalized because she was hit while trying to save him. They were pushed right as the train pulled in, he was thrown farther out and she landed closer to the platform. She was injured trying to save him before having no choice but to roll to the side at the last moment.

Her child died in front of her due to no fault of her own.
