WATCH: Shocking footage shows teenager push woman onto Dublin railway line seconds before train runs over her

A WOMAN was lucky to escape with her life after a hooded teenager knocked her onto a railway line as she ran for the train.

The terrifying incident occurred at Howth Junction in Dublin last month, and footage has emerged of the woman tripping and falling underneath a waiting train and onto the tracks.

A young thug can be seen using the wheel of his bicycle to trip the woman, an act that could very well have killed her had it not been for a number of quick-thinking passersby.

Once she falls beneath the train, some horrified on-lookers rush over before a rail-worker eventually pulls the woman up and back onto the platform to safety.

The teenagers, most of whom look unfazed by the whole ordeal, can be seen casually making an escape.

What's worse is another boy can be see trying to push over another lady running for the train just seconds before.

Luckily, rail workers were alerted to the situation quickly and stopped the train from moving, but had it been a quieter platform, who knows what could have happened?

According to Dublin Live, Howth Junction is no stranger to these sorts of disgusting incidents, and is particularly rife with anti-social behaviour.
