THERE is a report that the homeless man pushed into a Birmingham Canal is seriously ill in hospital with pneumonia.

It appears that wet through he climbed out of the canal and back leaning on a seat but developed pneumonia, with someone seeing his distress and calling for help and he being taken to hospital.

Poured beer over him

Originally it was two men saw him asleep by the side of the waterway, poured beer over him and as he stood up then pushed him into the water one of them recording it on his mobile phone and posting it on social media, where it can still be seen. 


There is no report of the two being apprehended though the police are investigating and asking for witnesses.
