A group of horrible children set fire to a homeless man’s tent while he was still inside. The heartless children ran away laughing as the tent went up in flames, forcing the rough sleeper to jump out.
A man called John, claims he witnessed the children chuck rocks and stones at the homeless man on Tuesday night before setting the tent alight in Dublin, Ireland.
He claimed seeing a group of around 10 youngsters – boys and girls – harassing the homeless man.
“I hear kids shouting and running. So I look out the window and I saw a man getting out of the tent,” he says.“There was this big group of kids aged around ten and there was probably about ten of them. They were running out across the road.
“About a minute later the group of kids came back and were chucking things at the tent. Rocks and sticks and things.
“So I don’t know what had gone on before but he had gone back in [the tent] and was ignoring it.“Then they start talking about setting fire, and that’s when I called the guards.”
John explains how one of the kids then set fire to the tent.”One of them ran up and lights the bottom of the tent and runs away.“It runs out and they run back and do it again.
“Eventually they light the top and the group of them runs off. The man climbs out so he’s safe he’s out.”Within a couple of minutes the whole tent is on fire.”
Thankfully, a heroic council worker spotted the fire and ran in with a fire extinguisher to kill the blaze while the man was safe after the accident.
