The video (above) shows a California teenager rushing to the defense of a blind boy who was being bullied by a classmate.
The video begins with the bully beating the noticeably upset and frightened blind boy before hero teen Cody Pines jumps in and knocks the bully to the ground with a single punch.
The bully goes down and blood can be seen running from his face.
“You trying to jump a f—— blind kid, bro?” the teen yells at the bully. “What the f— is your problem?”
At the end of the video, Cody tells the bully “I swear to God, if you f— with this kid again, I will f— you up.”
The fight took place at Huntington Beach High School during lunch, according to New York Daily News. The video was uploaded to the internet on Wednesday and was recorded by a bystander. It has now received more than 500,000 hits on Youtube.
The Huntington Beach Union High School District released this statement after the incident:
“Huntington Beach High School firmly believes that all students are afforded an opportunity to learn in a safe and secure environment. Because of this, safety is the highest priority. Huntington Beach High School has a very strong anti-bullying code of conduct and will not condone this type of behavior from any student.”
Soon after releasing this note, however, the school not only decided to charge the bully with a misdemeanor crime but also suspended Cody for fighting at school.
