A video clip showing that three South Asians had a fight with four Hong Kong men on a train at East Tsim Sha Shui station in Hong Kong has drawn attention on social media.

At around 10pm on Wednesday, three drunken South Asians quarreled with four Hong Kong men on a train, Apple Daily reported on Thursday. The three reportedly threw a red wine bottle to the Hong Kong people and shouted “get out onto the platform” in Cantonese.

A slap on a Hong Kong man’s face by one of the three triggered a fight. The three were beaten up and fell on the floor of the train platform in about half a minute.

MTR staff reported the incident to the police, who quickly arrived with shields and a police dog. Two injured men were sent to the hospital, according to the report.

The report, together with the video, had so far been shared 1,000 times and received 4,400 likes on Facebook in nine hours.
