Richard Marx Restrains Violent Passenger On Korean Air Flight With Daisy
Richard Marx restrained a violent passenger on a Korean Air flight on Tuesday after the man began attacking the flight attendants and other passengers. Marx’s wife, Daisy Fuentes, snapped multiple photos as the ordeal unfolded and shared them on Instagram. See a gallery below.
“On our flight from Hanoi to Seoul a guy sitting in the next row from us got crazy & started attacking the flight attendants & passengers,” Fuentes explained in an Instagram post. “When he started pushing the female staff and pulling them by the hair @therichardmarx was the first to help subdue him. This went on for FOUR hrs.” She continued, “I feel horrible for the abuse the staff had to endure but no one was prepared for this. They never fully got control of him. They didn’t know how to use the taser & they didn’t know how to secure the rope around him (he got loose from their rope restraints 3 times).”
Marx also recounted the event on his Facebook page. Along with a series of shots that his wife took, the ’80s rock singer added, “Korean Air #480. A completely ill-prepared and untrained crew for a situation like this. Four hours of a psycho passenger attacking crew members and other passengers.” He went on to note, “My wife and I are safe but one crew member and two passengers were injured. The all female crew was clueless and not trained as to how to restrain this psycho and he was only initially subdued when I and a couple other male passengers intervened.”
Marx also revealed that the perpetrator “later easily broke his restraints and attacked more crew and another passenger. When we landed in Seoul police boarded the plane.” The singer concluded, “Heading home to Los Angeles soon but Korean Air should be sanctioned for not knowing how to handle a situation like this without passenger interference.” See photos of the incident that Fuentes shared on Instagram in the gallery below.
