Hero or villian? Man kicks bike to stop a free-wheeling kid from crashing

Hero or villian? Man kicks bike to stop a free-wheeling kid from crashing



Although there were 'casualties' in this incident, the man did end up stopping the bike.

A confusing video showing a man kicking the bicycle of a young child as he free-wheels down a slope is currently going viral. 

In the video, the child, who is not wearing a helmet or any safety gear, attempts to free-wheel down a slope. 


While the slope does not look that steep, it is dangerous for any child (and adult) to ride a bicycle in public without some sort of protection. 


The child could be heard screaming (out of fear or joy?) as he goes down the slope.

An unidentified man notices the little boy struggling to control his 'vehicle' and runs up to the speeding bicycle. 


He immediately kicks the bicycle to stop the child in his tracks. 


This works a little too well as the child flies off his seat and lands face-first on the pavement.


Although the child did sustain some light injuries, the way he fell with his bicycle was hilarious.


The man then looks back towards the camera's direction in search of the boy's parents. 

Before the video ends, the child could be heard crying from the pain.

Netizens' reactions

This video garnered mixed reactions from netizens, some of whom feel that the man could have used a better method to stop the child from getting hurt.


While it has not been confirmed yet if the man is the child's father, his fast reaction is something to applaud. Maybe he plays football a lot?



Honestly, I would have done the same thing to stop the kid from further harm. 

The injuries that he received from falling off his bicycle was just collateral damage.

At least he didn't collide into a tree or gone off the path.



I agree! While this video has been going viral for both the right and wrong reasons, it is always important to stop and help someone in need.

While we might never know if the man is indeed related to the child, at least he managed to save him from a serious injury!

  • Car sharing Getgo vehicle blatantly ignored the red light and hit a taxi

    A common car-sharing Getgo vehicle gets caught on camera blatantly ignoring the existence of the red traffic light. Strange since this seems like the fundamental essentials of driving theory.  This resulted in the vehicle side sweeping an oncoming taxi and, hitting into it and resulted in debris inconveniently left on the road.  It's extremely fortunate that this blatant disregard for traffic rules did not result in a more severe and damaging accident. It might be wise for Getgo to con



    Spot an illegal PMD on the road? Shout and honk at them. They might lose balance and fall like these clowns

    Every time I see a PMD on the road, a Young Punk (YP) is usually the one behind it.  Worse still, an underaged YP who couldn't care less about their safety. Watch how a motorcyclist teaches a couple of YP PMD riders a lesson they will never forget: What Happen? The incident occurred at Punggol Field, involving a motorcyclist and two illegal PMD riders. The motorcyclist gave the PMD riders a short honk upon performing a discretionary right turn, most probably te

    Singapore registered Toyota Voxy pisses off a Malaysian Van and gets rammed in the rear… hard

    TL;DR – A Toyota Voxy with Singaporean plates plays the brake check game and blocks a Malaysian Van at the causeway checkpoint (Malaysian side) and ends up getting intentionally rammed in the rear.   It’s common sense to behave yourself when you’re in someone else’s territory. But apparently, this Voxy driver did not get the memo.   The Story According to the caption of the video, The Voxy was playing the braking game and blocking the Malaysian Van.



    Goondu cam car driver tries to shame a Mercedes C180 for 'unreasonably' honking at him. Netizens eat him up for breakfast

    I will be frank with you - There are numerous goondu drivers here in Singapore. Drivers that don't stop at the stop line, those that signal right only to filter left, and those who constantly brake despite a clear traffic flow in their path. These are some of the many goondu drivers I have come across before. However, I have yet to encounter a goondu driver like this cam car: IMG_7428.MOV.mp4 What Happened? After entering the expressway, the cam car driver gradually
