Father sentenced for throwing bystander at train

This is the shocking moment an innocent bystander was thrown against a moving freight train after remonstrating with a drunk over his foul language.

CCTV footage shows Robert Evans as he asks Daniel Worgan to stop making lewd comments to a group of girls at Shrewsbury railway station in July last year.
Worgan, a lorry driver and father-of-three is seen lifting Mr Evans off his feet, swinging him 180 degrees and hurling him towards the edge of the station platform.
Onlookers then rush to the 23-year-old’s aid as he bounces off the side of the metal carriages of the moving train.
Sergeant Karl Anderson, of British Transport Police, Shrewsbury, said: "This was a deliberate, violent and totally reckless act which resulted in the victim being inches from death.
"It is clear through the injuries and the trauma of the ordeal that this incident has had a substantial impact on the victim, who thought he was about to die."
Worgan, 24, from Telford, was sentenced to a suspended jail term at Shrewsbury Crown Court on Thursday after admitting endangering the safety of railway passengers.
The court heard it was only pure luck that Mr Evans bounced off the side of the train and landed on the platform rather than being thrown into its path.
Worgan was given a six-month jail sentence suspended for two years and ordered to do 200 hours unpaid work. He was also told to pay £500 compensation and £250 costs and put under a three-month curfew between 8pm and 6am.
Mr Robert Edwards, prosecuting, said Mr Evans was waiting for a train with friends at 11pm on July 29 last year when the incident occurred.
He said: "Worgan threw Mr Evans against a freight train that was moving out of the station. It was only luck that he bounced against the side and didn't fall onto the track."
The court heard how Mr Evans suffered injuries to his back and cuts to his arm and hand during the incident and has since refused to travel on trains.
Mark Sharman, for Worgan, said his client was appalled at his behaviour and had been out drinking to celebrate his birthday.

Opposition MP 'disappears' amid affair rumours

Amid rumours of an extramarital affair with a married woman, Hougang's Member of Parliament (MP) Yaw Shin Leong has disappeared from the public eye.
Since the allegations surfaced, the Workers' Party (WP) member has cancelled his weekly Meet-the-People session (MPS), The Straits Times reported on Saturday.
The paper found a notice announcing the cancellation of Mr Yaw's MPS taped to the wall at the void deck of an Hougang flat, where the MPS is usually held.

Air guitar flies off

Now that's what you call an air guitar.
A rocker who went for a guitar swing accidentally sent the instrument flying.
The 29sec clip shows the guitarist at a gig standing on stage with a guitar around his neck, next to two other guitarists and a drummer.
Instead of playing his instrument like the rest of the band, he goes for his own show-stopping manoeuvre.
But what should have been a casual guitar swing went embarrassingly wrong when he swung the instrument too hard, launching it up into the air and off-stage.
The guitarist was left looking sheepish and quickly picked up another guitar, probably hoping that nobody had noticed the on-stage blunder.
