Christmas, this year at Winter Wonderland, seems to be quite unpleasant. Just days back was the news of a boy losing a part of his finger in an ice-skating accident.
This time, it is two men fighting while bystanders encourage them to continue.
The Twitter video goes viral
A video shared on Twitter shows two men, one in a white t-shirt and another in a red t-shirt engaged in a brawl.
This news comes right after the Met police arrested three people for public order offenses this Sunday. It remains unclear if they were involved in this fight.
One of the onlookers told news outlets about quiet several other violent incidents at the Christmas attraction. Allegedly, at least a dozen people were thrown out in connection with these fights.
The onlooker said that the first big fight had happened when people were queuing to get into the beer hall in Bavarian village. Since it had shut down for an hour and was re-opening, quiet, a huge queue had formed outside. When security told them that it would take up to two hours to get in, people had started getting agitated. They started pushing to get to the top,
Then, two men had started fighting, and everyone was being pushed back while there was no space to go. The security had to move back one of the barriers to make sure no one got trampled
“It was quite scary, and luckily nobody was hurt.”
Disgraceful that children had to see the fight
A human chain was formed to prevent people from storming past to get into the hall. One of the men involved in the brawl was left bleeding while the other was arrested a while later.
The bar stopped serving alcohol due to the fight. Though people moved to a different area, the violence started again. The witness also said that a dozen people were thrown out, and people were shouting at the security guards.
The video attracted quite a few comments saying how disgraceful it is for children to witness violence like this. It is a Christmas attraction that is mainly for children, and they have to witness aggression like this. It is bound to have a traumatic effect on them.
