STOCKHOLM -- Swedish police are searching for a thief who found
an inebriated man unconscious on subway tracks, stole his valuables and
then left him there to be hit by a train.
A surveillance camera captured the incident at a Stockholm subway station early Sunday.
A video clip broadcast Wednesday by Sweden's SVT shows the
middle-aged man falling down from the platform. Another man in a blue
jacket sees him and jumps down on the tracks. But instead of helping the
man, he robs him, climbs back on the platform and walks away. Moments
later the man is struck by a train.
Police spokesman Dan Ostman told SVT one of the man's feet was
crushed and he was also injured in the face and shoulder, but survived.
