On Tuesday, Grammy Award-winning rock star and music legend Richard Marx helped take down a deranged passenger who got violent on his Korean Air flight. Marx was flying from Vietnam to Seoul, South Korea when a male passenger in the seat behind him began attacking flight attendants and other passengers. According to his wife’s Facebook post, Marx was vital in helping stewardesses restrain the crazed man for the four hour flight.
Upon his return to the U.S. at Los Angeles International Airport, Marx along with his wife said the passenger had been “out of control… he was just whacked out. He was attacking passengers.” The singer also revealed he was “exhausted” after the incident.
Later on, he and his wife, who is television presenter Daisy Fuentes, posted a Facebook status saying he wasn’t a “big ‘hero’,’ but simply that he “just did what [he] would hope anyone would do in the same situation.”
He did criticize the Korean Air staff and their preparedness to handle the situation. Marx claimed the flight’s all female crew were “clueless” and “not trained as to how to restrain this psycho.” It was not until he and other male passengers intervened in aiding in the restraint that the escalating situation was finally quelled.
