A man has appeared in court accused of attempting to murder a two-year-old boy at a Glasgow railway station.
Emergency crews were called to Garrowhill shortly before 7.30pm on July 2 following reports of two people injured on the tracks.
A 26-year-old man and a child were taken to hospital; the boy’s injuries were minor, and he was discharged earlier this week.
The man, from Coatbridge, was discharged from hospital on Thursday and arrested over suspicion of attempted murder.
Court papers state he carried the toddler on his shoulders, and then went on to move in front of an approaching passenger train.
Allegations go on to claim the train struck the pair, with the impact causing them to be projected under the train and onto the tracks.
The alleged assault is stated to be to the toddler’s severe injury, danger of life and attempted murder.
The man entered no plea on Friday at a private hearing at Glasgow Sheriff Court.
He was remanded in custody by Sheriff Andrew McIntyre meantime having also been fully committed.
He will appear at court again within the next eight days.
