Ricardo Vidal and his family landed at Buenos Aires Ezeiza International Airport. He was stopped by security “as he tried to return airside after discovering baggage handlers were on strike and attempted to return to pick up his luggage.”
He wasn’t having any of it. He got into a tussle with the officers. His two sons joined in to help him. One officer hit his head and was knocked unconscious with one of the family members on top of him. He suffers from a head injury. One of the sons “picked up a steel bollard used by security staff and went to attack another with it as other travellers looked on astonished.”
More security staff responded and eventually took control of the situation. The three men were arrested, though have been released on bail.
I don’t even know what to say. Frustrating as airport security may be, there’s no excuse for what’s on this video, and I’m surprised that an incident like this which occurred during international travel led to such quick bail.
