A Fox News weatherman has revealed that he was violently attacked in the early hours of Sunday morning on a New York City subway journey.
Adam Klotz shared on his Instagram that he was beaten by “seven or eight teens” and as a result, has bruised ribs, black eyes and cuts across his face.
Klotz, has been with the network since 2017, posted two videos to his social media on Sunday morning and shared details of the horrific attack.
“Hear me out, though: you should see the other guy,”
“My side—oh, don’t laugh—my side is so much worse than my face.”
“I feel like that last post seems like I wasn’t being serious. Like this wasn’t real,”
“But, yeah, coming home last night from watching the [New York] Giants game at a bar, on the subway, this older gentleman was being hassled by this group of seven or eight teens.”
“And I was like, ‘Yo, guys, cut that out.’ And they decided, ‘Alright, he’s not gonna get it, then you’re going to get it!’ And boy, did they give it to me. They had me on the ground—my ribs are all kinds of bruised up too. They got their hits in!”
“I got a couple of X-rays. I’m okay. This is all going to heal,”
“It’s all good! You know what I mean? New York City! New York City! Ahh, what a place. The Big Apple!”

The metrologist went on to mention that the man the group were originally harassing “got out of their fine” and that the “cops grabbed a couple of these kids” after the attack.
We wish him a speedy recovery.
