A video showing an attempted murder-by-train in Mexico City has been making it’s way around the internet.
In the footage captured on CCTV in June, two women are seen talking to each other in a subway station. When a train approaches, one of the women tries to shove the other in front of it. During the struggle they both end up falling onto the tracks.
The conductor acted quickly by applying the brakes in time to avoid crushing the women. But the attempted murderer was pinned underneath the train with a broken leg and hip.
Elinsurgente Press is reporting that the assailant’s name is Cristian Romero Alanis, 27. She became jealous because her lover had started seeing someone else and decided if she couldn’t have her, then nobody would.
Alanis is charged with attempted murder and could face 20 years in jail if convicted.
