Terrifying moment black teenager is aggressively pushed onto the train tracks by an abusive man
A 15-year-old named Leroy Abraham was racially abused and pushed onto train tracks by a 35-year-old man identified only as Jonas V.
The incident took place at a train station in Belgium and the young man was forced to defend himself against Jonas and the two women that were with him.
As it can be seen on the video, which was later uploaded to Youtube, Abraham managed to pull the attacker onto the tracks with him and proceeded to punch him.

Abraham was accompanied by his older sister and younger brother, who are yet to be named, with whom he was waiting for a train at Aatshcot.
Jonas, who had two women with him, reportedly started verbally attacking the 15-year-old with racial slurs and pushed him off the platform.
HIS HEART STOPPED FOR A MOMENT
According to Abraham, as soon as he hit the dirt, he feared for his life because he didn't know when the train would arrive.
Luckily, no train was coming, and when Abraham tried to climb out of the tracks but Jonas stopped him. The young man managed to grab the abuser and took him down.
THE POLICE WAS CALLED
As the two battled it out on the tracks, the two adult women stepped in to defend Jonas, followed by Abraham's sister who tried to separate the combatants.
One of the unidentified women attacked the girl and pushed her by her hair. At one point, the train station staff intervened and Jonas V. was arrested shortly after.
The 35-year-old was reportedly on probation and was charged with 'GBH with a racist character.' Some of his past crimes include stealing 50 euros from a blind woman and pushing an elderly woman off a bike after she saw him stealing alcohol.
A NEVERENDING ISSUE
Unfortunately, racism is still an issue, even in a supposedly evolved society; proof of that is a woman named Lynsey Plasco-Flaxan, who fired her nanny, Giselle Maurice, after accidentally sending her a text meant for her husband - twice.
In the text message, Lynsey complained that the nanny was black, which she later justified by saying that she had a bad experience with an African-American.
She then fired Maurice because she claimed she didn't want to leave her children with someone she had been rude to. Maurice is now seeking justice and filed a lawsuit against her former employer for being denied the salary of $350-a-day for six months that she was promised.
