London witnessed a horrifying incident last May when a jogger in his mid thirties pushed a woman out of his way into the path of an incoming bus.

CCTV footage has captured the entire harrowing ordeal of the woman.

The woman was saved from any major injuries by inches as the alert bus driver swerved the front wheels away from her head.

The incident happened at 7:30 am in the morning near Putney bridge.

The thirty three year old woman was walking by, when the jogger crashed into her and aggressively pushed her.

The woman lost her balance and fell, the front of her body tantalisingly close to the bus wheels.

Fortunately, the bus driver saved her from a fatal accident but the jogger ran away unfazed.

People have praised the alertness of the driver and called him a hero. Some of his colleagues have demanded a medal for him as well for his promptness and presence of mind.

The woman was helped up by passerby people and escaped with very minor injuries.

Fifteen minutes later, as the crowds thinned, the runner was returning through the bridge.

The woman tried to stop him and interact with him, but he seemed least repentant and ignored her completely.

Scotland Yard suspects that the man was a resident of nearby Fulham and is on the lookout for him.
