Security officer filmed pushing and suffocating teenagers after being “slapped”
A security guard at an amusement park was filmed shooting two teenagers, one being pushed to the ground and the other suffocated.
The moment one teenager was thrown to the ground and another suffocated by an angry security guard was captured on video.
Shocking footage shows chaotic scenes outside a seaside playroom as an argument between a doorman and two boys – believed to be 14 – escalates into violence, The sun reports.
Video taken of the incident at the Golden Palms arcade in Torquay, Devon, southwest England, shows one of the boys arguing with a bouncer.
The youngster, dressed in a gray top and black sweatpants, can be seen standing near the entrance, appearing to exchange angry words with the security guard.
Other young people can be heard chatting in the background, with one commenting on the older man’s age.
A loud banging sound can then be heard as the teen in the gray top rushes forward, appearing to slap the security guard.
