Shocking footage shows moment toddler is ‘pushed onto train track face-first’


Share post:


This is the moment a three-year-old girl was thrown from a platform onto a live railway track after allegedly being pushed by a woman sitting behind her. CCTV shows a person wearing a chequered top standing up from a bench and appearing to push the toddler with their right arm, causing her to land “face-first” on the tracks.

The girl, who was pulled to safety by others waiting on the platform, miraculously escaped with just minor injuries – suffering a severe headache and a red mark on her head, police say.

The incident unfolded as the youngster stood beside her mum on Portland’s Gateway Transit Center MAX stop in Oregon, US.

Brianna Lace Workman, 32, was arraigned on Thursday on charges of attempted assault in the first degree, assault in the third degree, interfering with public transportation, disorderly conduct in the second degree and recklessly endangering another person.

She has been remanded in custody.

In a statement, Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt said Ms Workman allegedly “shoved the child” off the platform “without provocation”, adding that she landed “face-first”.

He said: “The charges stem from an incident on the evening of Wednesday, December 28, at the Gateway Transit Center MAX platform in Northeast Portland.

“The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office has filed charges, including an offence for which Oregon law permits pretrial detention, and is requesting that Workman remain in custody and be held without bail.

“A charging document is only an accusation of a crime.

“Workman is innocent unless and until proven guilty.”
