I saw the footage on the television and it looked more like the camera man knocked the father over, not the other way around. You even heard the camera man apologise..
I guess the media reports whatever suits its agenda…

Story on ABC:

The father lashed out at a photographer, hitting him in the nexk with an unbrella. He earlier said that his wife wanted to make their children strong and robust, and to toughen them up. Nice work!

Story on the ABC here:

It seems mummy was the overbearining type and he planned to sue his folks over the pain and suffering inflicted upon him as a kiddy. His sister supported his actions.
