The first day of The Grand National, Thursday 9th of April, at Aintree Race Course in Liverpool. A drunk man brushes past an elderly pundit also intoxicated but minding his own business. The video first released has been cut down to make it look more sinister.. The full version may tell another story.. or does it? You decide!
Personally I still think he knocked in to him on purpose because his mate is recording him to make it funnier!
The man who could have died smacking hid head on the road lost teeth and smashed his phone a site has been set up to raise money to help the man pay to get his teeth and phone replaced!
Has raised £610 of a £200 target..
In the Liverpool Echo the man who recorded the video 'who laughs the whole way through' Philip Dears of Liverpool has been removed but on his facebook page he has issues this statement
It's very important that people take 2 mins to read this post.
I have a 2 minute long video of my mate Terry drunk walking home from the races on Thursday, during which he staggers and accidentally bumps into an old man. The man falls and I'm filming the whole situation trying not to laugh.
When I realise the seriousness of the situation the phone goes off, the laughing stops and I check on the old man, he is hurt on the floor but is being seen to by stewards awaiting medical attention. I turned my attention to Terry and wanted to make sure he gets home safety. On Friday my wife contacted Aintree A+E for me to try and see how the old man was doing but they could not give any information to her.
I have no idea yet how this has happened or how someone has got my video but on Saturday someone has chopped down and posted as if we deliberately target the old man and assault him, I have no idea who or why they have done this but their video has exploded all over the internet and the media.
The police are dealing with this matter, we have been up to speak with them last night and they have my proper video. I have every confidence that common sense will prevail and people will see the truth, but I will post the full video on here so people can watch and judge for themselves.
When you see the video you will see this is a total accidental collision, it's important people get this truth because a lot of people are very upset and I can see why because it looks like a malicious, cowardly attack but this is far from the reality of the situation.
Please watch the full video judge for yourself and let's see what the police say about it all. This is an unbelievable turn of events that has escalated out of all control.
I'm hoping common sense prevails and people give as much exposure to the true video as they have to the bad one.
I have been sent unbelievable messages of support from family and friends, people who know me, who know my true character have written to say they know the truth and this video just confirms it.
People who don't know me however unfortunately that is a different story. Please watch the full video I put up and then make up your mind.
