**GRAPHIC VIDEO**: Woman Thrown onto Subway Tracks
A woman is lucky to be alive after she was attacked by a man and thrown onto the subway tracks in Philadelphia.
Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) police say the vicious attack happened around 3:30 p.m., Tuesday when a man approached her on the platform and asked for a light.
Surveillance video shows the suspect moving closer to the woman, before he started beating her without warning.
The man then grabbed the woman by the ankles, drags her then throws her onto the tracks before walking away with her cell phone.
Police say the 23-year-old woman was very fortunate to walk away with only bumps, bruises and some cuts.
The suspect was arrested two days later after police identified him by the jacket he was wearing.
