36th week pregnant Jeanine was going to hospital for checkup, with daughter and public transport pass valid days more (shown to major media), when "security" guards decided Jeanine didn't have a valid pass because it took a moment to find it, so they wrote a fine which Jeanine ofc refused, so they hit Jeanine inside the subway car, then dragged the mother out of the train with crying daughter and sat on her with clearly pregnant belly pushed at bench, while removing daughter from mother and in response to extreme distress only ordered the abused pregnant woman to "calm down" and ordered people trying to stop the "security" guards' abuse and documenting it to back away, leave and be quiet.
"I was afraid my child would die in my belly. I screamed 'My baby'" says Jeanine to major paper DN.
