CCTV Catches Violent incident: Man Pushes Woman onto Train Tracks
Thanks to the great and always reliable technology behind CCTV security surveillance, the police as well as the rest of the world are able to view this chilling footage of a woman being pushed onto active railroad tracks. Thankfully, the woman was not injured, and another passenger was able to pull her up and off the tracks before a train arrived. If the incident had happened only a second later, it is likely that she would have been hit by the train. It is a disturbing moment that nearly ended in a huge tragedy.
The entire incident was captured by a CCTV security surveillance camera placed in a train station over viewing the platform. As a result of the incident being captured in the high quality camera, the man who pushed the woman onto the railroad tracks is now facing assault charges and in jail.
The incident began when train passenger Yevgeny Borodin began arguing with a female coworker. It is unclear at this time what they were arguing about or how the argument escalated so quickly. But it can be clearly seen the moment when Borodin pushed the female coworker onto the tracks. It was completely unpredictable.
Another passenger saw the entire incident unfold. The second passenger punched Mr. Borodin in the face, then immediately went to help the female who had been pushed onto the tracks. With his help, she was able to get off the train tracks and save herself from an o0ncoming train. At that time, the other passenger then chased Mr. Borodin as he ran away from the scene of the incident.
Mr. Borodin was caught by law enforcement and is currently facing charges. Detectives are also investigating the case to see how the incident escalated so quickly. No one could have possible predicted that Mr. Borodin would suddenly push his female coworker onto the tracks in what could have been a fatal encounter.
In addition to the CCTV security surveillance camera in the area, there was also a witness to the incident. He released a statement to the press which reads: ‘I was standing quite a way away at the other end of the platform. There was a heated debate going on and three people standing there including the metro employee. It was getting more and more heated, I could hear them shouting at each other but I didn’t know what it was about – and then a man suddenly pushed her onto the tracks. Really hard – there was no way she could have saved herself. The other man then thumped the attacker in the head before helping the woman back onto the platform. Everything happened so quickly. I often see fights on public transport or on the streets here but I have never witnessed something so horrific. He could have killed her. Right after he pushed her, a train came into the platform; if it had been a second later the woman would have been run over by the train and died. She was shaken and clearly groggy but lucky to be alive.’
