Unruly brothers slap passenger on HK train, only to get whacked by elderly uncles

Three brothers who slapped a passenger on a train in Hong Kong got more than they bargained for when they got beaten up by a group of passengers, including some elderly men.

According to a Ming Pao Daily report, the three brothersĀ aged 17, 19 and 24, appeared drunk when they boarded the train at East Tsim Sha Tsui Station.

One of them bumped into a 19-year-old woman and started harassing her, reports EJ Insight.

This sparked a quarrel between the group she was with, consisting of six men and two women, and the three brothers.

In videos taken by one of the passengers, the brothers were seen yelling vulgaritiesĀ and hitting the train doors.

One of the brothers slapped a man who was with the 19-year-old woman, starting a scuffle between the two groups.

The other passengers subdued the brother who slapped the man, while two elderly men were seen trading blows with the other two, proceeding out of the train.

More men soon stepped in and subdued the other two brothers, who pleaded with the passengers to not call the police as they had too much to drink.
