Horror as man grabs stranger’s baby to jump in front of train | World | News

The boy was slightly hurt, his would-be killer unharmed. His mother, who was on the platform with her other children aged one and three, was comforted by fellow travellers as medics pulled her son to safety.

Police say the attacker is “known” to them and had attempted suicide before.

A spokesman said: “The family were complete strangers to him. He simply walked up to them, grabbed the little boy without a word.

“Then he jumped from the platform to track number five and ran towards the incoming train on track nine.

“The driver made an emergency stop. But the first wagon rolled over them both.

“The boy only has abrasions. The man remained unharmed. He is now being investigated for attempted murder in a psychiatric facility.”

A police spokesman said: “The man abruptly approached the family and silently grabbed the little boy. Then he jumped from the platform onto track five and ran towards the approaching S-Bahn 9 (city train).

“The driver made an emergency stop. Just before they got hit the man from Gelsenkirchen, who is known to the police, threw himself and the child he was holding in his hands between the rails. The first train car drove above both though. Miraculously the boy only has abrasions. The man was uninjured. He is now being checked for mental health issues.

“He has been living here for a couple of years. He is also a re-offender.

“Currently he believe that there were no political or religious reasons for the act.”
