Video shows a group of angry teens attack and beat an off-duty New York firefighter in Queens
This is how a group of little jerks paid back the man whose work is to save lives.
A jaw-dropping video shows a moment a group of teens viciously attack an off-duty New York firefighter who was walking his dog in Queens.
The terrible attack took place on Friday at about 9:55, when a 44-year-old off-duty NYFD firefighter, who was walking his 3-year-old Labradoodle at Juniper Valley Park in Middle Village.
The firefighter repeatedly asked the group of teens to stop launching illegal fireworks at the park and stop jumping on the fence of a daycare center across the park.
"One kid took his shirt off and said, 'It's Fight Night!' He said he was 19 and said, 'I could fight you.' Everyone took their cell phones out. There were cell phones everywhere," the man told the Post. "They all came at me…A kid came up behind me and hit me in the back of the head with a bottle and I let go of the dog."
The firefighter released the leash f his dog to defend himself when the angry youngsters attacked him.
"They didn't care at all. The kids were going crazy. They were as high as a kite," the victim said. "I got hit, turned around, that's when the kids started coming at me."
When the firefighter was knocked to the ground, one of the teens can be heard repeatedly shouting, “Give him a shot!”
"Then I was on the floor, holding one kid and an ambulance pulled up. They were waiting by the park … If they weren't there I would have been in much worse condition," the firefighter, who preferred not to be named said.
The man refused to be hospitalized.
"I'm a little lumped up. What are you going to do? Thank God I'm still here. It could have been worse," he said.
The NYFD officials confirmed that the victim received a head injury after a hit with a glass bottle.
Police said none of the dumb bastards linked to the attack have been arrested yet.
