Man casually pushing a woman onto train tracks in Hong Kong is like a scene straight out of a TV series

Remember that scene you never saw coming from the Netflix TV series House of Cards? (Yes, spoiler alert!) On the show’s first episode of its second season, Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) casually pushed Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara) onto the tracks while an incoming train passes by and led to her death. It is still, by far, one of the most WTF moments of the show.

Now imagine if you see a scene like that in real life.

In Hong Kong, a man was arrested after casually pushing a woman onto train tracks and walking past her like nothing happened.

A disturbing CCTV footage shared on Facebook shows a 59-year-old woman working at the railway station, standing on the platform. A man passing by calmly walks behind the woman then shoved her onto the rails.

The horrified victim wasn’t able to brace herself for the fall and appears to hit her head before looking up at her attacker. Onlookers were shocked while the man calmly walks straight ahead.

Luckily, incoming trains were immediately stopped by the station and the victim reportedly got back to the platform shortly afterwards. She reportedly suffered injuries to her jaw and sent to Pok Oi Hospital for treatment.

According to South China Morning Post, the assailant was arrested on suspicion of assault and the authorities are now searching for a motive.

This really looks like a scene straight out of a TV series or something that a vengeful kontrabida would do in Pinoy teleseryes!
