Pope Fran­cis loses tem­per af­ter al­most be­ing pulled over by crowd

SP's MAI - - INTERNAL SECURITY -

Pope Fran­cis lost his tem­per in Mex­ico af­ter a per­son pulled him so hard he fell onto a child in a wheel­chair. Video footage shows the Pope stop­ping to greet chil­dren at the edge of a crowd in More­lia’s Jose Maria Pavon Sta­dium, where he de­liv­ered a speech to thou­sands of young peo­ple.

At this point, two arms reached out to grab him, not letting go even as he lost his bal­ance and was pushed onto the child.

Aides and se­cu­rity men stopped the Pope from fall­ing to the ground, and he ap­peared an­gry, rais­ing his voice and telling the un­seen per­son, twice in Span­ish, “Don’t be self­ish!”

The Pope on his six-day trip to Mex­ico paid trib­ute to the in­dige­nous peo­ple of the coun­try, telling them their land had been stolen.
