Don’t ask A passenger who fell to the track after being pushed back was saved by the driver’s quick response. The perpetrator was identified as a 23-year-old French national.
According to Belgian public broadcaster VRT on the 15th local time, an attempted murder case occurred at the Brussels Logger Station around 7:44 pm on the 14th.
In the released video, a man is waiting for a train to arrive at a subway station. As the train approaches, the man cautiously approaches the woman standing in front of him.
Then, suddenly, he pushes the woman with all his might. The woman loses her center and falls to the track. The woman who fell hit the track.
The engineer saw the woman falling onto the track and applied emergency braking, and the train fortunately stopped in front of the woman. After the train stopped, citizens lifted the woman onto the platform.
An official from the Brussels Metropolitan Transportation Corporation (STIB) said, “The engineer saw a person on the track and stopped it.”
The man who pushed the woman committed the crime and then fled. But after a while he was caught at a nearby subway station.
Prosecutors have applied for an arrest warrant for the man on charges of attempted murder. They also asked to be assessed for mental health problems. Prosecutors believe the two do not know each other.
An official from the prosecution said, “We are conducting an investigation to find out the exact facts and the motive of the suspect.”
