When push comes to shove at the subway station, the result is often death.

Remember the guy who got pushed onto the tracks in New York back in December?

‘Doomed’ is right. He died.

Fast forward a few weeks, and police in Philadelphia have released surveillance video of a similar attack.

The grainy video shows a man attacking a woman sitting on a bench.

He pulls her off the bench by her feet, drags her and then throws her onto the tracks.

Unlike the New York incident, this victim was really lucky.

She survived with only minor injuries.

Thanks to the video, police were able to identify the scum bag, and arrested him.

Police aren’t sure of a motive, but believe he may have mental problems.
