London Underground condemns ‘reckless actions’ of men who fall into path of approaching train | London

London Underground has condemned the “reckless actions” of two men who fell in front of a train while play fighting.

The pair fell onto the tracks at Green Park as a Victoria Line train approached. A shocked witness on the platform was heard saying: “Oh my god! Get Out!”

They were pulled to safety just seconds before the train pulled into the station.

This behaviour was extremely dangerous and not only put the lives of the men involved at risk, but others on the platform who tried to help. These reckless actions will not be tolerated and the police will take the appropriate action.

British Transport Police say two men have been charged following the incident in the early hours of April 1.

Boguslaw Rybski, aged 34 and of Aboyne Drive, Wimbledon and Przemyslaw Zawisza, aged 26 of Park Lane Tottenham, were both charged with endangering the safety of a person conveyed by railway.

They were bailed to appear before Westminster Magistrates’ on 19 April.
