The clip shows how the woman fell on the tracks and was lucky enough to not be harmed by the train. The metro driver pulled the emergency brakes on time, saving the woman from coming under the moving train. Bystanders also rushed to help the woman.
According to a report by Brussels Times, the metro train operator had reportedly seen the woman on the tracks and hence pulled the emergency brakes just in time.
Police and emergency services were immediately called to the scene and images of the perpetrator were distributed by police services. Within a few minutes, the man was caught and arrested from the De Brouckere metro station.
Guy Sablon, spokesperson for Brussels public transport company STIB, told the Brussels Times, "the driver reacted very well but is very much so in shock, as is the victim".
As per NDTV, both the train operator and the woman, were taken to the hospital and received treatment. Later on, they returned to their respective homes.
The perpetrator remains in custody for attempted homicide and an investigation is being carried out to find out the suspect’s motive.
Meanwhile, a psychiatrist has also been appointed by the examining magistrate to verify the perpetrator's condition.
