Video shared online Thursday shows the horrifying moment when a crazed man shoved a woman into the path of an oncoming Manhattan subway.
The 40-year-old woman was waiting on the uptown No. 4 and 5 tracks at the Union Square station around 8:45 a.m. when the homeless suspect approached from behind, cops said.
The shocking video shows the man waiting for the train to roll in before violently shoving the woman onto the roadbed.
She miraculously survived as two subway cars passed over her before the train came to a stop.
The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital with a head injury, and was conscious and alert, according to police.
Cops charged Aditya Vemulapati, 24, with attempted murder, assault and reckless endangerment for the attack. His arraignment was pending Thursday afternoon.
“It was by the grace of God that she sustained only minor injuries,” NYPD Transit Chief Kathleen O’Reilly told reporters at the station. “We see him waiting and calculating when the train comes into the station, and at the opportune moment he pushed her to the tracks.”
The video shows Vemulapati put his hands in the air and lying on the ground as a transit worker approaches immediately after the attack.
Tired of social media platforms silencing voices they don’t agree with?
