A New York City woman shoved onto subway tracks as a train approached says she has no recollection of the terrifying, random attack.
Liliana Sagbaicela, 40, was shoved in front of an oncoming train by a complete stranger at the Union Square Station in Manhattan at 8:29AM on Thursday, witnesses and law enforcement said.
Incredibly, she ended up inside - and not on top of - two rails and kept her head down as the train passed over.
She told 1010 WINS she is lucky to be alive.
“What I remember, when I arrived there, I wanted to listen to my Bible, so I put it on this one, and it’s the last thing that I remember,” Mrs Sagbaicela said.
“I didn’t know what happened. When I was in the hospital, I wake up, I opened my eyes and said, ‘What happened?
“I think I was dreaming, because I didn’t have an idea.”
Now back home recovering with her husband and two daughters, Mrs Sagbaicela has something to be truly thankful for this Thanksfiving.
“I saw in the video, the man - oh my, God, I can’t believe it,” she said.
“Is this happening? Now I understand why everybody and the police say to me, ‘You are alive for the miracles. You are a miracle.”
