A TV camerawoman who works for a Hungarian TV channel was shown tripping and kicking migrants on Tuesday as they fled police near Hungary’s border with Serbia.

Petra László, a camera operator for Hungary’s N1TV television channel, apparently tripped a man carrying a child, causing both of them to fall. The 20-second video was captured by a reporter for a German TV channel.

A second video published by Hungary’s Index news agency shows László kicking two other migrants.

The station on Wednesday posted a message on its website saying László had been dismissed for “unacceptable behavior.”
