BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA: Recently, a wild brawl occurred between two women and a man on a Brisbane bus in Australia that shocked onlookers and viewers of the video. The passengers who were involved in the fight were screaming and exchanging furious hits and punches.
In the video, a woman with a pink backpack is seen pushing herself on another woman as a man pushes them up against the center partition of the bus. On top of it all, a baby can be seen being squeezed awkwardly with one leg raised against the middle pole of the bus.
The baby strapped to the woman's chest was then pinned against a pole and can be heard crying in the video. Meanwhile, the driver can also be seen fighting with a passenger in the front. Later, the females who were involved in the fight stop to pick something up from the floor and restart the brawl once again. When passengers heard the baby cry, one of them got up and yelled at the group to "let her go."

Fortunately, the baby didn't get injured in the brawl. Finally, the driver and a male passenger in the back of the bus intervened to separate the group from the furious brawl. According to news.com.au, the incident has led to discussions from the Rail, Tram, and Bus Union for better safety measures for drivers, who are tired of encountering violence during their work days in Brisbane. Police said that they were not aware of the bus brawl and had not received any reports of a similar incident over the last few days.
According to DailyMail, “Drivers are scared to drive the 100 route and no wonder problems flare up constantly,” Bus union representative Tom Brown said. Another union representative Peter Allen said that the drivers are "fed up with the violence they are subjected to on a daily basis."
In another incident, a 12-year-old was taken into custody after she allegedly brandished a firearm in Louisiana at another school girl following a fight inside a school bus. The incident reportedly happened on Friday, August 19, when the accused from Akili Academy and another child got into a brawl and apparently pulled each other’s hair. But the children’s fight did not end there as the girl then de-boarded the bus, took a gun from a vehicle, and yelled outside the closed bus. She continued to scream at the other girl and demanded the bus gate to be open but when her wish was not fulfilled, she walked away.
