Video: Vicious attack on cyclist who is shoved over from a moving car

By Liz Dunphy

A video of a man pushing a cyclist over from the window of a moving car is fast going viral online.

The cyclist is shoved with such force that he falls from his bike into the ditch below. The fall looks traumatic, and the cyclist may have sustained injuries.

You can hear laughter in the video after the cyclist hit the ground.

The video was posted with the words “This is the new challenge boys”. However, the Facebook page’s author has denied that the video is his.

Update Monday 11am: The video, which had been viewable at this link, has now been removed.

The video has already had 383,000 likes on the Facebook page on which it is posted, however many people also criticised the video, and questioned how anybody could find the video funny, when what appears to be an innocent person is attacked for no reason other than for the perpetrators' entertainment.

People have reacted angrily to the video on social media. Here's a flavour of those comments:

“Do people not realise how dangerous this is if the cyclist is going even at a slow pace it can cause serious bodily harm. People need to cop on.”

“The only way this would have been funny is if he missed and fell out of the car.”

“What would they do if that person had heart problems and had a heart attack from fright? Or they had special needs and it severely upset them? ”

“ Would have been funny if it was one if these idiots on the bike and the other gobshite fell out the window, or got a smack of a branch This assault on a stranger is bang out of order & I hope karma bites you hard. On the bollix.”

The Daily Mirror posted a similar video in June, with the article Disturbing footage captures laughing yobs shoving cyclist off bike from moving car.
