This is the shocking moment a woman in her 60s is barged into the path of an oncoming bus following a row with a ‘mother’.
Astonishing CCTV footage shows the offender, who is with a small child, shove the victim forward as the bus pulls up to traffic lights in Pimlico, London.
The driver was able to slam on the brakes but the victim collided with the vehicle’s doors, while the offender briskly walked away leading a small boy by the hand.
Meanwhile bypassers rushed to aid the victim, who was left sitting on the edge of the pavement nursing a head wound, while her white trousers were covered in dirt from a puddle.
Police have released the footage alongside an image of the suspect and are appealing for help tracking her down.
