In a fight in a subway in Mexico, one of the two fighters bit off the other’s ear.
In Mexico’s capital, Mexico City, a fight broke out after a woman asked for help on the subway saying she was being harassed. As the fight grew, a person involved in the fight bit off the harasser’s ear.
While many police and first aid teams came to the scene upon the notification of the other passengers on the train, the authorities stopped the bleeding by intervening the harasser whose ear was severed. Upon the victim’s complaint about the harasser, the persons were taken to the police station to take their statements and take legal action against them.
While the incident was widely covered in the Mexican press, some media outlets referred to the incident in which US boxer Mike Tyson bit off his opponent’s ear in a 1997 match.
