A teenage girl nearly died after her friend pushed her that caused her to be under a moving bus. The horrifying incident happened in Czechowicach-Dziedzicachand, Poland on Thursday, April 12. Local authorities released the CCTV video, which you can watch below. Warning: The video may have contents not for weak hearts.
According to Polish media, the two girl friends are around 17 years old. As you can see on the video, their faces were not seen as they were walking in sidewalk. Seconds later, a bus came from behind them, and when as it passes them, the girl on the inner part of the sidewalk playfully pushed her friend towards the street.
The girl’s friend fell on the street, with her head nearly being crushed by the huge tires of the running bus. In fact, at first glance, you might think that the bus had ran over the victim’s head. The girl was obviously shocked, and did not react at once. She just covered her mouth and probably realized that her push was really a bad joke.
The lucky girl immediately stood up and her friend hugged her, and appeared to be apologizing for what has done. Shortly, a white car passing by stopped and the driver got off to check if the girl was hurt. The bus also stopped, and the driver got off to check her condition. He also called the police and an ambulance to treat the 17-year old girl.
Authorities said that the victim suffered only minor abrasions and bruises. Based on the interview with the girl who pushed her friend, she said it was only a joke and realized it was a bad one. She was asked to pay fine equivalent to $86, but the city’s police commander was not satisfied and decided to seek a stronger punishment for her.
The injured girl’s friend is now facing charges of exposing her friend to “to loss of life or health”. If found guilty, she could face up to one year in prison. The identities of the victim and her friend were not revealed, and their families did not release a statement about the supposedly tragic incident.
