    British police have appealed for witnesses to help find a jogger who pushed a woman into the path of a bus.

    London's Metropolitan Police force released surveillance camera footage Tuesday of the May 5 incident on Putney Bridge.

    It shows a jogger in shorts and T-shirt banging into a pedestrian, who tumbles in front of a double-decker bus. The bus stops just before hitting her.

    Sgt. Mat Knowles said "it was only due to the superb quick reactions of the bus driver that she was not hit by the vehicle."
