A robbery victim returning home after a drunken night on the town fell down on the tracks at subway station south of Stockholm. He was knocked unconscious when his head hit the tracks.
A bystander who witnessed the accident jumped down after him - but not for a daring rescue before the train arrived. Instead, the witness steals the man's valuables, climbs back on the platform and leaves his victim to be hit by a train.
The man - who was on his way home from a party - survived, but was seriously injured and doctors had to amputate half his left foot.
Swedish police now hope that surveillance camera footage of the disturbing incident will help them find and arrest the thief.
"To me it's incredible that one could steal or rob from somebody who is lying in such a place where you know that, if I don't do something, then this person will, in a worst-case scenario, get killed by the train that is coming. Because the train is going to come," police inspector Dan Ostman said.
He calmly walked out of the subway station, waving to the ticket vendor, as a train ran over the victim on the tracks below.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.
The rest of us are a bit crap.
