What a great demonstration of courage these three demonstrated for the whole world to see. All too often these days we see people so apathetic to others being beat up or brutalized with spectators just watching, it really is a breath of fresh air to recognize those heros on that train.
Afghanistan veteran Skarlatos told British television: “I saw a guy enter the train with an AK and a handgun. At that time, I ducked down, and my friend Spencer [United States Air Force] ducked down. I looked to him and said to Spencer, let’s go.
“Spencer got to the guy first, grabbed the guy by the neck, and I grabbed the handgun and got the handgun away from the guy… then I grabbed the AK by his feet and started muzzle-bumping him in the head with it. And then everyone just started beating on the guy while Spencer held the choke-hold until he went unconscious”.
