Klotz was driving a train early Sunday morning when he said a group of four teenagers were smoking marijuana on the train and allegedly tried to light a passenger’s hair on fire.
He intervened and the group turned against him. They started beating him and even chased him to another subway car when he tried to escape.
Several of the young suspects in the attack have been arrested.
Klotz was left with bruised ribs, black eyes and cuts to his face.
Police assigned to Transit District 2 were alerted and apprehended three of the teenagers. Two are 15 and one is 17. They were all promptly released after being accused of assault because they were accused of minors.
FOX News meteorologist Adam Klotz spoke to FOX 5 News about the subway attack.
EMS took Klotz to NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue in stable condition. Two 15-year-old men and a 17-year-old man were taken into custody and juvenile assault reports were prepared.
Prior to joining FOX News, Klotz served as a weekend weatherman and multimedia reporter for FOX 5 in Atlanta, Georgia.
