Disturbing new footage has emerged, showing an elderly man dependent on oxygen being attacked with his own oxygen tank, carjacked and run over with his own car in the parking lot of a restaurant during the riots in Ferguson, MO, on Wednesday, 27 November.
The chaotic scene has taken place in the parking lot of Faraci Pizza, on Florissant in Ferguson, and we see the man lying face down on the pavement with his oxygen tank beside him. KMOV-TV’s Robin Smith reported:
You need to take us live. Some gentleman was in his car, he was on oxygen, they stole his car, left him on the ground. We’re standing here where he is.
Witnesses said that the victim was attacked by two men, as he was returning to his vehicle to replace his almost empty oxygen tank. As the attackers attempted to take his car, the elderly man held on to his steering wheel and was run over as the criminals sped away. “Only in America do you see stuff like this”, witness Jaye Perry told The St. Louis Post Dispatch.
Paramedics arrived at the crime scene and transported the man to the hospital, but his identity and condition are as-of-yet unknown. The perpetrators are still on the loose. (Scroll down for the video.)
