Fox News meteorologist Adam Klotz was violently attacked by a group of teenagers over the weekend while riding the New York City subway following the Giants vs. Eagles game.
Klotz was on his way home via the subway when he noticed that a group of teens was harassing an older man who ended up having his hair set on fire by the youth.
“I was like, whoa, you can’t do that,” Klotz explained to “Fox & Friends” Monday morning. “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,” he said. “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?”
Klotz says that he was repeatedly taunted by the group and that in order to remove himself from the situation, he changed subway cars. That, however, did not stop them from attacking the Fox employee.
“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, however, he was eventually knocked unconscious leaving his side “black and blue” and with a damaged knee.
“Where are the parents?! Don’t let your kids come beat me up in the middle of the night again. Please parents watch your children,” Klotz said in a social media post.

Following the attack, the New York Police Department was able to apprehend three of the suspects two of which were 15 and one was 17. However, they will not face charges and have been released back to their families.
The juveniles won’t be charged given a 2019 state law that raised the age for a youth to be charged as an adult from 17 to 18, according to The Daily Wire.
While the Big Apple has seen an upsurge in crime in recent years, this incident is just one example of how fundamental good parenting is to a stable and safe society. Had the parents been more active in these teenagers’ lives then perhaps an incident like this would not have happened. Hopefully, Adam Klotz can heal quickly and return back to his job at Fox.
