Four Swedish police officers on vacation in New York City rushed to the aid of a panicked train conductor trying to break up a fight between two homeless men on Wednesday.
The officers were on their way to see Les Misérables on Broadway when the train conductor asked if there were any police officers on the train over the intercom, the New York Post reported.
The officers restrained the two men, one of whom calmed down quickly and was left alone. The other screamed "I can't breathe!" And, "You're hurting my arms!" The officers then appeared to adjust their grip on the man.
The officers repeated, "Calm down sir, it's going to be OK." When the man stopped screaming they asked, "Are you injured?" He responded, "No."
The officers then waited for the New York Police to arrive to escort the two unidentified men elsewhere. The officers continued to ask the men how they were feeling and if they were OK.
"We came here for vacation; we've been here one day," one of the officers, 25-year-old Markus Asberg, told the Post. "We're no heroes, just tourists."
