In the flight contentions are becoming more frequent but they don’t usually involve the well-known faces.
On Tuesday, singer Richard Marx helped restrain a violent passenger on a Korean Air flight after the man began attacking flight attendants and other passengers—and his wife Daisy Fuentes captured the entire incident happened, according to TMZ.
“On our flight from Hanoi to Seoul a man sits in the next row of us got crazy and started attacking the flight attendants and passengers,” Fuentes explained in an Instagram post.
On our flight from Hanoi to Seoul a man sits in the next row of us got crazy and started attacking the flight attendants and passengers. When he started with the pushing of the female staff and attract them by the hair @therichardmarx was the first to help subdue him. This went on for FOUR hours. I feel terrible for the abuse of the staff had to endure, but no one was prepared. They never fully gained control of him. She did not know that the use of the taser and she didn’t know how secure the rope to him (he got loose from their rope restraints 3 times). I will be posting some of the video after our next flight.

Fuentes caught her husband’s efforts in a series of photos. At one point during the struggle, the crew even used a rope to the passenger from lashing. According to Fuentes, at least two passengers and a crew member were injured during the incident.
Marx is also aware of the ordeal on his Facebook page and said that he believes that the Korean airline employees on board were not well-equipped to handle the out-of-control flier and that the airline should be punished.
“Korean Air #480. A completely ill-prepared and inexperienced crew for a situation like this. Four hours of a psycho passenger attacking members of the crew and other passengers,” he said.
He added that, while he and Fuentes were safe for the “female crew was clueless and not trained how to stop this psycho and he was only initially subdued as I and a few other male passengers intervened.”

He said that it took so long to subdue the passenger, because the man was able to break his limitations “easy.”
The singer says the man was taken to the police after the flight landed in Seoul Tuesday evening.
A representative for the Korean Air was not immediately available for comment.
