A law student in Rio de Janeiro was arrested for attempted murder after cops say he was caught on CCTV pushing his ex-girlfriend in front of a moving bus last week.
Lucas Monteiro, 25, allegedly pushed the victim because she refused to have an abortion. Her plan to keep the baby reportedly delayed his plans to go to Canada to continue his studies. The woman – who is four months pregnant – survived the impact.
The harrowing footage, captured by a building’s security camera, shows Monteiro pushing the young woman into the street.
The victim, whose name is being withheld, stumbles into the path of the oncoming vehicle before it hits her, running over her legs.
The bus driver then slams on the breaks and the woman appears to scramble to her feet.
