PIERS MORGAN has pulled up “totally scambags” who were caught ripping a defibrillator off a wall before allegedly breaking it at a skate park.
Nuke Football Club in East Sussex shared a video filmed on CCTV showing three youths pulling a defibrillator from a wall at 7.50 pm on Friday.
According to the football club, after removing it, they reportedly took it to a nearby skate park and “broke it into pieces”.
The club described the actions as “evil acts” – with life-saving equipment costing thousands of pounds.
Piers Morgan shared the video to his eight million Twitter followers today, writing: “What the fuck. Anyone know who did this?”
Some offered to launch a crowdfunding effort to purchase a new defibrillator for the club, while McDonald’s Fun Football offered to help pay for a replacement.
Online has contacted Sussex Police for comment.
In June, a teenager was arrested after he was caught breaking a football team’s defibrillator, hours after Christian Ericsson’s cardiac arrest during Euro 2020.
The destruction sparked outrage after footage of life-saving equipment being destroyed was shared.
Buxted FC in Ukfield, East Sussex tweeted CCTV to appeal for the identity of the miscreants.
Police later said a 17-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of causing criminal harm.
Buxted FC thanks everyone who shared the footage of the defibrillator being destroyed.
He added: “We can’t thank you enough for the retweets, comments and likes.
“The response has been incredible.”
As previously reported by club committee volunteer Mick Gosden Mirror At the time: “I really can’t believe how low some people would get.
“It is very appalling. With the events of yesterday afternoon with a professional footballer, it is very disappointing.”
