A surveillance camera inside the Sandsborg metro station near Stockholm, Sweden, captured footage of what initially appeared to be a man attempting to rescue a fellow subway patron who drunkenly fell off the platform onto the tracks.

But it quickly becomes evident that the helpful bystander is in fact a callous thief taking advantage of the situation to swipe the unconscious man's wallet.

Moments after the Bad Samaritan exits the scene, the train arrives and runs over the victim, who is still passed out on the tracks. Luckily, he survived, but sustained a serious injury to his left foot that required its amputation.

The footage was recently shown on the Swedish version of America's Most Wanted in the hopes that someone will identify the suspect and help bring him to justice.
