A regular subway commute to work turned into a horrific scene when a man punched Sam Saia in the face.
She had complained to the man sitting next to her, asking him to stop “manspreading,” or sitting with his legs wide open. He was taking up too much of their shared seat.
Then, it seemed as if the man suddenly snapped during their argument. He ended up punching her in front of the entire subway car — and the security camera in the corner.
Luckily, a Good Samaritan stepped in and changed everything.
In the video below, posted on November 18, 2017, we see the security footage from the frightening moment.
A 29-year-old man named Victor Conte approaches the violent man and grabs his arm. Then, he handles the situation perfectly.
Victor holds onto the man with a firm grip and tries to subdue him. According to The Washington Post, the hero told the man, “Get off the train, bro! You don’t hit a lady,” and later explained, “I was mad that he hit her and no one else on the train did anything. There were two guys literally sitting across from her, and they just looked away.”
Thankfully, Victor didn’t turn a blind eye.
Check out Victor’s heroic actions in the video below, and please SHARE if you’re glad he stepped in to protect this woman from a very dangerous situation.
