Man Fakes Heart Attack When Police Try To Kick Him Off A Train
We've all been in the same position as this guy (albeit, never as dramatic). It usually happens on a train or tram and you've not paid your fare. You're ejected like some naughty kid who's giggling in the classroom.
But this guy took things to an extreme when he faked an actual heart attack as police officers attempted to kick him off a train in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The guy, who hasn't been named, was allegedly asked by a woman to 'delete photos he had taken' but on is refusal, the situation escalated to a full-blown argument between the man and other passengers which reportedly lasted for about 10 minutes.
He told the woman who insisted that he delete the photos: "You are not the boss of me!"
The man tried to justify his actions by saying that the woman he photographed was wearing revealing clothes, according to local media.
The row was filmed and uploaded to Facebook where it went viral with over 1.2 million views.
The video shows passengers arguing before a cop arrives and asks the man to leave his seat, which he refuses.
He is then seen faking a heart attack by clutching his chest and making some odd groaning noises, but his act did not fool anyone and he quickly appears to be fine again.
On social media, one person said: "Why didn't they arrest him? I don't think he is well in the head."
Another added: "Oh no, where are the drama classes?"
And if you thought drama on public transport was a rarity you'd be wrong.
Only a week ago a man riding a New York Subway train made a citizen's arrest after filming a woman who launched into a racist rant against another passenger, also lashing out and hitting her with an umbrella.
The woman, who police have named as 40-year-old Anna Lushchinskaya, was arrested shortly after the incident in Brooklyn.
Juan Ayala, who filmed the incident, eventually made a citizen's arrest after she turned on him, and held Lushchinskaya until police arrived to take her into custody.
While someone tried to grab the umbrella from her, telling her, "You're going to make us all late for work, bitch," Lushchinskaya continued to attack the woman, and even called her a 'fucking c**nk'.
Speaking to ABC's Eyewitness News, the victim - who wanted to stay anonymous - said: "I'm lucky that she didn't have anything like weapons on her - like knife, gun - because it could have got a lot worse."
