A woman in Chongqing, China, suddenly bit a male commuter on board the Chongqing Metro train, before stripping naked, and lapping up the blood off the floor from the attack.
The harrowing incident happened at the Yudong station, located in the Banan District on Wednesday afternoon (July 18), with many netizens describing the event as a real-life enactment of the zombie horror movie "Train to Busan".
Spooked by the bizarre attack, many commuters ran in fear, with witnesses saying that the victim left a blood trail on the floor as he fled, reports Lianhe Zaobao.
Meanwhile, his assailant continued to lick the blood on the floor.
According to local news, a spokesman from the Chongqing Metro said that at around 1pm, the 36-year-old woman from Sichuan, Lee, became hysterical after an argument with her husband.
The argument allegedly arose over the couple's relationship.
Lee then attacked a male commuter, 56-year-old Mr Gao, in train 03050 on Line 3 of the metro network.
It is unknown if Lee and Gao knew each other prior to the attack.
After metro staff members were alerted to the situation, they quickly evacuated the commuters according to safety procedure and informed the authorities.
Lee was apprehended and remanded at the Chongqing Municipal Public Security Bureau (Rail Transit Branch), while Gao was quickly conveyed to a hospital for treatment.
In response to media queries, the police said that the case was currently under investigation.
