When does the Newton’s third law fail?

Consider a point charge placed in empty space. It will create it’s own electric field, then let an another point charge comes in electric field of first at a distance ‘d’ and first charge exerts a force on second but the second charge’s electric field takes d/c time to reach the first charge. So, for that d/c time Newton’s third law fails.
