A YouTube video has come out showing a portion of the fistfight between actor Raymart Santiago and TV news personality and newspaper columnist Ramon Tulfo Sunday (May 6) noon at Terminal 3 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
The 59-second video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Y0-w8Eqi4_w) however did not show who started the fight. It was uploaded by a certain glamchiq00.
The video, which was obviously not a CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) clip, however, showed the airport security having separated Tulfo from the couple.
An unidentified man wearing a pink shirt and shorts, ran towards Tulfo and they scuffled. He fell on the floor. Meanwhile, Santiago wearing a gray shirt and white shorts, surged toward Tulfo and grabbed him at his back and appeared to be strangling him.
At this juncture, the man in pink, who was unrestrained, attacked Tulfo again, punching him repeatedly.
Tulfo was heard shouting, “sir, sir, sir.”
Santiago’s wife, Claudine Barretto, wearing a pink tank top, was seen having her share int the fight, pulling Tulfo’s shirt, even while the columnist was already down. Barretto’s companions (a yaya and another girl in gray shirt and shorts) were also seen trying to pull her out from the fight.
Security guards and some airport police were eventually able to restrain the personalities.
Tulfo, who was down, was seen having a hard time getting up.
Tulfo earlier said the security guards were not able to do anything as someone was already strangling him. “Mahina. Mahina sila,” he said in a radio interview.
