A bus rider is being hailed as a hero after rushing to the rescue of a woman he saw being attacked while she waited at a bus stop.
Surveillance footage captured the shocking incident. As it appears in the clip, the woman was waiting for her bus when a man suddenly walked up to her and pushed her into a doorway, then began physically attacking her.
The woman fell to the floor, and just as it seemed like she was totally helpless, a male passenger exited from a parked bus, approached the woman’s attacker, and punched him in the face.
The attacker stumbled backwards, allowing the woman to get up and flee the scene. The heroic bus passenger can be seen standing over the attacker while he’s still on the ground, trying to get his bearings together.
Eventually, the bus passenger left the attacker and walked away, but not before picking up something he dropped on the ground during the fight.
The footage was originally uploaded to LiveLeak and has quickly gone viral, garnering more than 40,000 views.
According to the Daily Mirror, it is believed that the incident occurred someplace in Russia, but the exact location is unknown.
We need more people like this bus passenger who didn’t hesitate to come to the aid of someone in need.
It is likely that in these times, other witnesses would have been more inclined to pull out their smartphones and record the attack, as opposed to trying to intervene or seek help for her.
Hopefully, the attacker learned his lesson about harming people. He got what was coming to him in the form of some painful karma.
