Woman shoves child onto train tracks
A woman shoved a child onto train tracks in Portland, Oregon, on Dec. 28, 2022.
An Oregon woman who was caught on video pushing a 3-year-old child onto train tracks in December 2022 has been found guilty except for insanity, prosecutors said Wednesday.
Brianna Lace Workman, 33, was ordered to be placed under the jurisdiction of the Psychiatric Security Review Board (PSRB) for care, custody, and treatment for a maximum of 10 years, the Multnomah County District Attorney said.
Workman shoved the child face-first onto the MAX train tracks at the Gateway Transit Center in Portland without provocation on Dec. 28, 2022, as the child and the child’s mother were waiting on the platform.
Surveillance video released by the district attorney’s office of the incident appears to show the suspect jump up from where she was sitting on a bench on the platform and push the child, who was standing in front of her.
