SERGE Fournier, 74, has died after being shoved from a bus by a young woman in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The video, which did not include sound, showed Fournier speaking to Bishop, then getting behind him and - as the bus stopped and the exit door opened - allegedly shoving him with both hands off the bus. Fournier, holding his walker, falls flat on his face, hitting his head on the sidewalk.

According to witnesses, Bishop was arguing and cursing at passengers on-board when the victim, Serge Fournier, asked the woman to be nicer.

A coroner later determined that he died from complications of blunt force torso injuries, prompting police to arrest Bishop on Monday, the Las Vegas Review-Journal notes.

Police attended the scene, where the man refused help but later checked himself into hospital.
