Police: Ice Train and Boy

police: The mother was able to escape but the boy was hit and run over by the train and suffered fatal injuries, according to CTV. The suspect then apparently tried unsuccessfully to push another person onto the track, police said. The mother and then the boy were pushed onto the tracks as a high-speed ICE train was pulling into the station, one of Germany's busiest. The 40-year-old suspect fled the scene with passers-by in pursuit and was arrested near the station. Police spokeswoman Isabell Neumann said there appeared to be no connection between the suspect and the victims. He was being questioned and there was no immediate information on his possible motive.
