Based on a New York Post report, a woman was detained for allegedly pushing a 3-year-old girl onto subway tracks in Oregon earlier this week.
“The child landed face-first onto the metal rail and rocks before being quickly rescued from the train tracks,” Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt said in a statement.
Schmidt added that the toddler, following the incident, had a small red mark on her forehead and complained about a strong headache.
The video shows the three-year-old standing next to her mother and just beyond the white caution line when a woman sitting behind them quickly and deliberately shoves the little girl over the edge.
The accused, convicted felon Brianna Lace Workman, 32, was charged with first-degree attempted assault, third-degree attempted assault, interfering with public transportation, second-degree disorderly conduct and recklessly endangering another person.
We don’t have a motive and, according to the district attorney, the child did nothing to provoke the action.
The incident took place on the platform at Portland’s Gateway Transit Center.
