A shocking new video shows the moment an unhinged homeless man shoves an unsuspecting straphanger to the tracks just before the subway pulls into the station.
Surveillance footage posted to social media shows the man pacing back and forth on the northbound 4/5/6 platform at 14th Street-Union Square just before 8:30 on Thursday morning before running at the 40-year-old woman and pushing her onto the tracks.
One of the other straphangers grabs his head in shock and turns away, the video shows.
The woman, though, escaped only with minor injuries from her fall.
“She fell, fortunately for her, between the row bed and the rails,” Transit Chief Kathleen O’Reilly said at a press conference Thursday morning. “Very minor injuries but for the grace of God.”
The suspect, Aditya Vemulapati, was arrested moments later and charged with attempted murder, assault reckless endangerment, police said.
