Anything can happen on a Russian road but when a scuffle broke out between two drivers on Wednesday, unexpected help came from a little boy who bravely stood up to protect his dad. A witness video captured the hero kid ending the fight.
It all started when a white SUV collided with a sedan in
northeast Moscow on Wednesday.
“We were taking a stroll with my family heading to Izmaylovsky Park. A grey sedan stopped and pulled the SUV to the curb. A man jumped out of the sedan, took out a bat from the trunk, and began threatening the driver of the SUV,” Sergey, a witness and author of the video, told LifeNews.
The two men then began to swear and push each other. The fight grew tense and the man wearing a tie began to strangle the man in the t-shirt.
But then the video shows a boy in a blue t-shirt launching into action in true Superman style – though he wasn't wearing red underpants.
“Don’t touch my father!” he shouts. He then picks up the bat which the offender apparently dropped and attempts to tackle him with it. But the feeble attempt fails – the aggressive man in the suit takes away the bat and throws it on the ground.
The child then starts pushing the offender away from his father, standing between the two.
“Get off him!” cries the boy, running after the man advancing on his dad. The latter finally turns away and leaves as passersby call out to the adrenaline-ridden driver: “Hey you idiot, leave the kid alone! What are you doing?”
