For those who take the metro/local/tube for daily transit, spotting an empty seat during peak rush hours is nothing less than manna from heaven. While there are seats allocated for elderly, physically challenged and women here, what would you do if an elderly person goes to the extent of slapping you to get you to vacate a seat?

A video tweeted by RT.com shows an elderly man slapping a woman in China for not giving him a seat. In response, she immediately gets up and fights with him. He is later seen being taken away by another passenger to end to the spat.
