THIS is the shocking moment two Southern workers appear to chuck “dirty water” on a homeless man outside a packed train station.
The workers can be seen tipping a bucket of soapy water on the tramp as he lays on the ground outside Sutton station.
The Sun This is the shocking moment a Southern worker appeared to chuck water on a homeless man
He appears to be pleading with one of the employees, who is wearing a Southern jacket, as he continues to pour water on the ground.
The homeless man’s belongings, which are on the ground next to him, also get drenched.
A passenger, who doesn’t want to be named, shot the shocking video yesterday at around 12.30pm.
She told Sun Online: “I’d been watching him lying in the sun when the Southern worker came out with a mop and poured the water on him.
“It was really dirty water, like they had been using it to clean the floors inside.
“I had to film because I couldn’t stand by knowing we are all just three or four steps away from being in that situation ourselves.
“It was disgusting behaviour.”‘THEY LOOKED LIKE THEY ENJOYED IT’
The woman said the workers told her the homeless man was causing problems before they poured water on him.
But she has slammed their excuse – claiming they should have called the police to deal with him properly instead.
She said: “Two wrongs don’t make a right – regardless of what he’s done, you shouldn’t treat a human being like that.”
The passenger originally posted the video on Facebook where it has been shared almost 1,000 times.
Stunned viewers have hit out at the Southern workers for how they treated the homeless man.
One said: “Absolutely disgusting. Those two should lose their jobs.”
Another wrote: “Totally unnecessary!”
