A pair of quick-thinking maintenance workers saved a mother and her young child at a Jamaica subway station Monday morning when the two-year-old’s stroller tumbled onto the tracks, cops said.

The 39-year-old mother was throwing away some trash on the Parsons Boulevard and Archer Avenue station’s eastbound E train platform around 11:15 a.m. when the stroller fell, according to police.

She jumped onto the tracks to try and save the girl, and sprained her ankle.

Two maintenance workers was then able to pull the child and her mother to safety, officials said.

The two-year-old suffered minor bruising to her eye. Both the toddler and mother were taken to Long Island Jewish Medical Center in stable condition, police said.
