Shocking cell phone footage captured the violent scenes in the garden of a hotel – which was not named – in Muratpasa, southwest Turkey, when the fight began when a British tourist looked at a Russian man’s girlfriend
The shocking moment of British and Russian tourists beating each other in a five-star hotel, reportedly leaving a British man with a broken arm, was captured on camera.
The argument between up to 15 men is said to have sparked when one of the British was accused of looking at a Russian’s girlfriend.
The horrific scenes were filmed on Monday evening with a cell phone in the garden of an unnamed hotel in Muratpasa in southwestern Turkey.
Violent scenes occurred, according to En Son Haber, which reportedly left a British tourist with a broken arm and a Russian tourist with a broken nose.
A man is seen landing a blow on another man and knocking him to the ground.
Things escalate quickly as more punches are thrown.
Russian tourists then attacked their rivals when footage shows the two groups yelling at each other, with one apparently telling the other to “fuck off”.
The junk turns into a mass brawl when one of the Russians allegedly attacks a British tourist.
At some point you hear a man with a British voice shouting “Get away from me”.
Then some women who are supposed to be friends of the tourists seem to interfere and try to separate the men.
They can be heard screaming as the fight continues before the violence ends.
The shocking scenes also show unidentified hotel workers trying to intervene and stop the violence.
Local media reported that garden tables and armchairs were damaged in the fight.
It was also reported that a British tourist suffered a broken arm and a Russian tourist suffered a broken nose.
Both are said to have been treated by doctors who were called to the hotel.
The police are supposed to investigate the incident as none of the parties involved have been identified.
