The video pans on several students locked up in a brawl, shoving and chasing each other to prove who’s strongest and most intimidating amongst them all. Meanwhile, the students can be seen running helter-skelter as a car speeds towards them.
Two students who were already indulged in the brawl somehow don’t notice the approaching car and get run over by it. The impact of the hit was such that one of the student’s slippers also got flung off from his legs.
While one would assume that the incident would’ve stopped the brawl, shockingly enough, it intensified the brawl. One of the students who was hit by the car got up, and started hitting another student who also got on his feet. Meanwhile, the students are seen leaving the scene as a cop emerges.
