Heroic commuter stops MRT fight by picking man up and throwing him aside

SINGAPORE - A black-clad man has earned praise online for single-handedly breaking up a fight between two men on an MRT.

In a widely circulated video online, the man was filmed walking up to a pair of men trading blows in an MRT cabin.

Throwing his plastic bag aside onto an empty seat, he grabs one of the men - who had wrestled the other to the ground - picks him up and bodily throws him aside.

He then holds off any further fighting by placing himself between the shocked combatants, who quickly back down.

Netizens lauded the man for his bravery and decisiveness online for stepping up to a fight and risking his own safety to maintain order.
