Shocking Video Shows Woman Shoving Elderly Man Out Of Bus After He Asks Her To Be Kinder
The elderly man, Serge Fournier, eventually died from injuries caused by the fall.
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police have released shocking video footage of a woman pushing an elderly man out of a bus.
Serge Fournier, 74, had reportedly asked a woman, who has been identified as Cadesha Bishop, 25, to be nicer to other passengers just moments before the fatal shove.
Fournier flew out of the open bus doors onto the cement sidewalk, where he hit his head. He died about a month later in hospice care from the injuries, KSNV reports.
Before the shove, Fournier—wearing a ball cap and red jacket—can be seen in the video exchanging words with a woman who is standing at the front of the bus.
Fournier had been trying to exit the bus with his walker when he was pushed to the ground. Other passengers on the bus reported that Bishop had been yelling profanities at other passengers before the incident, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
After he was shoved to the ground, Bishop reportedly got off the bus, without ever offering him help, and walked away with her son.
She allegedly pushed him “with enough force that he never touched any of the steps” of the exit and fell about eight feet from the doorway of the bus, according to a police report from the attack.
Police said Fournier died from blunt force trauma to the torso, The Las Vegas Sun reports.
Bishop has been charged with murder of an older person and is being held at Clark County Detention Center.
Investigators are asking any witnesses to the March 21 incident to contact authorities.
