The New York City subway continues to be a dangerous place.
According to a Fox News report, Fox meteorologist Adam Klotz was assaulted by a group of teens after he came to the defense of an older gentleman rider; “where is Eric Adams?” asks Klotz.
From Fox News:
Klotz was on his way home after watching the Giants-Eagles NFL playoff game at a Manhattan bar shortly before he noticed a group of teens harassing an “older gentleman,” and had set his hair on fire with a joint.
“I was like, whoa, you can’t do that,” Klotz said “Fox & Friends.” “That’s not cool, and that’s all it took, and then I was the focus of all their attention.”
“I want there to be something done. … Why is the weather guy on the train trying to stop crime in the middle of the night? Like, where is Eric Adams? Where’s the city? Why am I doing this? Why is it up to me?”
He said the group was taunting him, and he tried to remove himself from the situation, but the attack did not stop there.
The group followed him to another subway car.
“I get off that train after taking a punch,” Klotz said. “The whole group, the doors open again at another stop, the whole group just comes and bum rushes me, and suddenly I’m like, on the ground. I’m getting kicked in the side. I’m getting wailed on.
“They were trying to knock me out, and then once you’re unconscious, and you’re getting punched like there’s no defense, so I was just doing my absolute best to cover my head,” he continued.
“So I kind of get knocked out, and now my side is black and blue. My knee, I can hardly bend because I was getting kicked and punched.”
