Video of a teen defending a visually impaired classmate who was being bullied has gone viral.

Cody Pines, the teen who punched aggressor, tells Fox 11 that he had always wondered how he would react in a situation like this.

"I've always watched videos of bullies beating up kids and getting away with it and to me...I've always been the kid that says 'If that ever happens with me around...it's never going to go down like that," said Cody.

He goes on to say that he wants people to get to know Austin, the young man who is visually impaired.

"I hope everyone hangs out with him now shows him love, because Austin deserves it honestly - he's a cool kid," said Cody.
