On the afternoon of December 21, a man on the subway in Shanghai aided police in capturing a criminal by simply tripping him up.
Many people might pale at the idea of wrestling a criminal to the ground single-handed, but as this citizen showed, sometimes all you need to do is stick out your foot be a full blown hero.
As the criminal fled through the station, pursued by police, he ran through an intersection near an exit where the Shanghai man simply stuck out his foot and caught the criminal’s shin causing him to fall. This delayed the criminal long enough for police to catch up and arrest him.
