ATLANTA -- (WGCL) -- MARTA Police have identified the man who allegedly pushed a woman onto the tracks at the Midtown MARTA Station Sunday, prompting a chaotic scene that ended with the woman's daughter critically wounded.

Police identified the suspect as Christopher Patrick Brooklin, 28. He is charged with aggravated assault and battery in a public transit station. Brooklin is currently being held in Fulton County Jail.

Police said Brooklin pushed the 58-year-old mother onto the tracks. The woman's 27-year-old daughter jumped onto the tracks to try to help her mother.

"Everybody was trying to pull them up, but it was too late because the train was coming," said a witness to the scene. "The train was already coming, and in the process of everybody trying to pull them out, it was just too late. The train was going too fast."

The daughter remains in critical condition at an area hospital. Police said the mother was treated for her injuries and released.
