Man fighting for life after being pummeled by Coney Island security guard: cops

A 21-year-old man is fighting for his life after a security guard repeatedly punched him while ejecting him from a Coney Island amusement park Tuesday night, police said.

The guard allegedly slugged the man several times in the head as he was escorting him out of Luna Park around 7:30 p.m., following a squabble at a ride, according to police.

The victim, whose identity wasn’t released, was taken to Lutheran Medical Center and was diagnosed with “severe head trauma,” cops said.

A woman who was with the man in Luna Park told authorities the two were on the go-carts when they got into a dispute with staff about dangling their legs outside the ride, cops said.

The couple was then ejected from the amusement park, but the altercation continued as they left — leading the security guard to allegedly strike the man, according to police.
