Authorities in Victoria have pressed charges against a 14-year-old boy who stands accused of pushing an elderly fisherman off a pier and subsequently sharing the incident on social media. Responding to a call around 11:30 pm on Sunday, officers arrived at a pier near Schnapper Point Drive in Mornington. The report detailed an elderly man being forcefully pushed into the water.

A video circulating on social media captures the distressing moment as a group of teenagers approaches the man, shoves him into the water, and hastily departs the scene. The footage, now widely shared, has prompted public outrage and concern. The incident sheds light on the repercussions of such thoughtless actions, prompting a legal response to address the disturbing behaviour of the young individual involved.
