Casey Heynes slams bully onto the pavement
SYDNEY, Australia (WUSA/CBS) -- A video of a teen body-slamming a bully has gotten the world's attention.
The boy's name is Casey Heynes. According to reports, Heynes had been bullied by a group of boys at Chifley College High School in St. Mary's, Australia for a while.
The video shows two bullies throwing punches at Heynes, before he grabs the second boy and slams him to the ground.
"He's not a violent kid; it's the first time he's lashed out and I don't want him to be victimized over that," Casey's father told the Sydney Telegraph on Tuesday. "He's always been taught never to hit. Apparently, other people's parents don't teach their kids that."
A spokeswoman for the NSW Department of Education and Training at Chifley College, Dunheved Campus, the Australian high school said, "does not tolerate any violence and deals with all cases according to its community-agreed discipline code." "Both students in a fight at the school shown on the Internet have been suspended ... the only injury sustained was a grazed knee."
