A horrifying video shows a large group of teenagers savagely attacking a boy on Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York, on Sunday. The video was posted at 9.47pm Eastern on Easter, several hours after the attack near Luna Amusement Park is believed to have taken place, according to the New York Post. Sources said the boy on the ground in the video suffered a collapsed lung. 'Today in Coney,' the social media user who originally posted the video captioned it, with three emojis depicting tears, according to the New York Daily News. The 19-second clip starts with the person holding the camera running over to the scene where the attack is taking place, along with others. Several people can be seen kicking at the individual, who was laying down on the ground and had his arms up to protect his face. One person jumps up and lands hard on the boy's head before another immediately comes up and kicks him in the head, as well. Another grabs at the victim's leg and pulls on it before the victim kicks free of his grasp. The camera changes angles just in time to show a tall individual jump up in the air, then come down to stomp on the torso of the boy on the ground. Two more people kick the individual hard in the head before the clip stops. The video is believed to have been taken outside the Luna Park amusement area on Surf Avenue near West 10th Street. The cause of the fight is unknown at this time, but the police are investigating the incident as gang-related. The police were able to identify several people in the video of the attack. Arrests are reportedly imminent. The video was originally posted to Facebook but was removed from the platform on Wednesday. 'We remove graphic images and videos when they are shared to celebrate or glorify violence,' a Facebook spokesperson told the Post. In what may or may not have been an unrelated occurrence, Luna Park closed three hours early at 9pm Eastern on Sunday due to false reports of gunshots in the area that caused panicked people to charge in the area. Reports of gunshots were determined to be false by the NYPD 60th Precinct, who tweeted as much at 9.18pm.
