A man named Wayne, who is 62 years old and happens to be the older sibling of former football player Gary Lineker, was caught in a heated exchange with a few men. These men seemed to have been bothering his female companion. The altercation occurred in the wee hours of the morning, specifically on Wednesday, June 12th, right outside of Eden Bar in San Antonio.

The father of four lost consciousness after a heated encounter with one of the men and was hit so hard that he was unable to stay awake for about five minutes before eventually waking up.

The event made onlookers worry that Wayne had passed away on the sidewalk. A person who saw it happen talked to The Sun and described it as "awful" to witness. The culprits fled the scene after assaulting Wayne.

The teenage pupil, who is 18 years old, relayed to the media: "It was terrible - there was a moment where he seemed lifeless. Wayne simply collapsed to the ground, and the male and his companions fled. He was unconscious and barely responsive when he eventually regained consciousness. I remained by his side to offer assistance, but the authorities arrived briefly, didn't really take any action, and departed hastily."

Keep up the great work. Many wonderful opportunities are on the horizon for you and you achieved all of it without my assistance! You told me, 'Dad, I will do this myself. I appreciate your desire to help, but I am capable of handling it on my own.' I feel immensely proud of you for saying that, and I love you."
