Icelandic man pushed in front of oncoming train in Copenhagen

Police in Copenhagen are treating an incident in which a homeless Icelandic man was pushed in front of an oncoming train as an attempted homicide. This is reported by Visir online today.

The incident occurred on Saturday evening. The Icelander had reportedly argued with another homeless man over a cigarette, with the aforementioned result. The train drove in four seconds after the man hit the tracks, but through sheer luck he landed between two tracks and the train drove over him. He escaped unhurt, save for a cut to the forehead.

The Icelander has been in Copenhagen for six months and claims he has lived on the street all that time. The suspect has not been apprehended.
