Typhoon Linfa flew over Hong Kong Thursday night, causing slight damage, no injuries but a lot of frayed nerves.
Apple Daily is reporting that a Kowloon Motor Bus (KMB) driver was slapped and another pushed by a passenger who became furious after being told bus services had been suspended because of the incoming storm.
KMB had announced the suspension at 7:15 p.m. shortly after the No. 8 typhoon signal went up when a man came and wanted to know when the 276A bus would depart from the Tin Heng Estate terminus in Hong Kong’s Tin Shui Wai district.
When the 28-year-old driver told him about the suspension, the man became irate and pushed him to the floor.
The man then went after a second driver who tried to stop him, knocking him to the ground despite his wife’s best efforts to restrain him.
The incident was caught on a video camera in which the man appears to kick the fallen driver before hitting him in the face.
The two drivers ended up in hospital while the man and his wife walked away as if nothing happened, according to witnesses.
The police are looking for a Chinese male between 40 and 50, about 1.75 meters tall and wearing a black shirt and jeans at the time of the incident.
