HOLLYWOOD, FLA. (WSVN) - A 40-year-old man was caught on camera as he was knocked unconscious and badly bruised during a fight on Hollywood Beach.

It happened back in June, on Father’s Day, near Tyler Street and North Broadwalk.

One man hit the other, causing the victim’s head to hit the ground.

“People are crazy,” said Aaron Fink, who works nearby.

“I think it’s horrible,” said Donna, who is visiting from Ohio.

The victim laid on the ground unconscious with a large crowd around him when Hollywood Police arrived. One of his front teeth was knocked out, and he was taken to the hospital.

According to investigators, it all went down when the victim and his wife were standing in line, and two couples cut in front of them. That’s when his wife began arguing with them, and when the victim stepped in, a fight broke out.

Police said a woman pushed the victim’s wife, which led to the fight between the victim and two men.

Some of the blows were captured by nearby cell phone video, including the moment when the victim’s head slammed to the ground.

Nearby restaurant workers tried to intervene, but their efforts were too late as the victim appeared to already be unconscious. 

He eventually regained consciousness and was rushed to Aventura Hospital for evaluation.

Police now want to find the two people who they say are behind this alarming attack.

“Their moms didn’t raise them right. You don’t do that,” said Fink.

“I wouldn’t appreciate seeing that. It probably would’ve detoured us from coming back again,” said Donna.

Hollywood Police are asking the public to contact them if they know the people in the video, or call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward of up to $5,000.
