Original story:

THE METROPOLITAN Police are looking for a jogger who appeared to push a woman into the path of a bus on Putney Bridge, in London.

CCTV footage captured the incident in which the 33-year-old woman was “knocked into the road” by the passing runner, while walking over the bridge at about 7.40am on May 5. A double-decker bus narrowly avoided hitting her by swerving away from the kerb. According to the Met, the woman suffered minor injuries.

Reports say passengers on the bus disembarked and rushed to the woman’s aid.

The jogger has been described as a white man with brown eyes and short brown hair who is in his early to mid-30s.

Sergeant Mat Knowles said: “The victim was put in extreme danger when she was knocked into the road. It was only due to the superb quick reactions of the bus driver that she was not hit by the vehicle.
