This is the moment a brave woman uses her own body to try in vain to protect her boyfriend from a savage beating as he lies defenceless on the ground under attack from five cowardly thugs.
The incident took place in the north-western Turkish province of Bursa when the young man, identified as B.K., went shopping with his girlfriend B.A.
While the couple was walking along a street, two men reportedly made disparaging remarks towards the young woman which resulted in a public row.

Passersby calmed down the argument and the four people involved went their separate ways.
The young couple then went to a nearby cafe where five burly men entered and dragged the boyfriend outside, according to local media.
As seen in the footage, the men then proceeded to knock the victim down and repeatedly kick him on the ground.
While he does his best to protect himself from the onslaught, his brave girlfriend comes outside and throws herself on top of him to protect him.
This however does not stop the thugs who continue to kick the boyfriend and the brave woman also appears to catch some of the blows too. Then the thugs pause before trying to drag her off him, in vain.
They then resume the beating before passers-by intervene to put a stop to the violence and the young man was rushed to hospital in an ambulance.
He reportedly suffered several fractures and the local police have confirmed that they are investigating the incident and trying to identify the attackers. There have so far been no reports of any arrests.
