This is the shocking moment a crazed commuter launched an apparently random attack on a woman - pushing her on to the tracks of the London Underground.
The 23-year-old victim struck up a brief conversation with the thug and following a trivial row over the man's hat, he turned and shoved her on to the rails on the Northern Line at Leicester Square.
She only missed the live rail by inches, and was able to pull herself back onto the platform with the help of other travellers before the next train came down the platform.
Injuries to her side were so severe, witnesses initially thought she had been stabbed.
British Transport Police are still hunting the man behind the vicious assault, describing him as smartly dressed. (that narrows it down)
