A panhandler at the White Plains Metro North station apparently shoved a 21-year-old Hunter College student in front of an oncoming train when she refused to give him any money on Wednesday. She survived, amazingly, but she's pretty badly hurt. "The girl’s leg was mangled and witnesses said she even lost some fingers," the New York Daily News reported. A witness told the paper that according to cops the alleged pusher, Howard Mickins, "was so outraged when he begged the college student for money but was turned down, he shoved her into the train’s path." A vendor at the station told ABC Local that Mickins had been dropping by to panhandle about five times a week for the past six months or so. "Today he decided he was going to flip out and do something."
