Philadelphia teen nearly thrown on Center City SEPTA rails


A Philadelphia teenager is lucky to be alive after she was attacked at random and nearly thrown onto the SEPTA tracks in Center City.
Courtney Wilcox, 17, tells Eyewitness News she was targeted at random by a stranger at the Walnut-Locust station.
"I saw my life flash before my eyes," said Wilcox. "It was scary."
Wilcox was standing on the southbound side of the station after a day of shopping with her sister-in-law when 33-year-old Alex Alia allegedly tried to push her into the path of an oncoming train.


"He grabbed me from the back and I grabbed his book bag that he had on and I swung myself around so I could push him off of me," she explains.

Wilcox says she only had moments to spare before the train sped past and there were no other SEPTA riders on the platform when the attack happened.

"It was 10 feet away and it was still moving, If I didn't fight him off I would've been dead down there."

The teenager was able to break free and contact SEPTA agents for help.
Alia was arrested at the scene and the entire incident was captured on surveillance video.
Sources say Alia has a lengthy criminal record consisting of as many as 35 prior arrests.

BVM Music Choice: Anthony Flammia ( @AnthonyFlammia) - The Looper

As a blogger I love finding new talent (well knew talent to me) and I can say I have listening to Anthony Flammia.. Surfing social media and I happen to stumbld upon this video on my dash



Those raw vocals made me do a quick search and that is how I found his "The Looper" project. What is the looper you ask??

The Looper was created in its entirety tonight, May 1, live at Premiere Studios in New York. With the help of his RC-505 Roland Loopstation, Anthony created every song onstage through a process of looping himself beatboxing and stacking blended harmonies with sound effects, together making up the instrumentals over which he sung, audience participation very much included. All songs are original and were written, produced, arranged and performed by Flammia himself.
Check it out here  and enjoy the dope harmonies
