This is the moment a Spanish couple are caught breaking the country’s coronavirus lockdown to seemingly have sex in a photo booth in a Barcelona metro station.
The scene was recorded by a security guard in the Plaza Espanya metro station in the city of Barcelona in the eastern Spanish region of Catalonia during the strict coronavirus lockdown throughout Spain.
According to the secretary of the Professional Union of Private Security, Ignacio Arroyo, the scene was recorded on Tuesday at around 6 pm.
In the video, the unnamed security guard can be seen walking towards the booth where a man’s legs can be seen with his trousers around his ankles with a woman seemingly in front of him.
The security guard coughs to get their attention and the boyfriend then says “we are taking a photo,” with the guard sarcastically answering “yeah, sure”.
The pair can then be seen pulling up their underwear and telling the guard they will leave soon.
According to Arroyo, the scene is a sign of the poor conditions on the metro in the last few days, with the number of passengers decreasing because of an increase in troublemakers breaking the quarantine on the metro.
Another unnamed union representative said that they have called the regional government as they have noticed that pickpockets are still working in the area despite the isolation measures ordered by the government.
According to official data from the Mossos d’Esquadra (Catalan police), the crime rate has decreased in the metro, while Barcelona Metro has announced essential workers can use the system for free between 2nd and 9th April.
It is unclear if the couple were arrested or fined.
According to the latest figures from the Johns Hopkins University, Spain has registered 104,118 confirmed cases of COVID-19 with 9,387 deaths, and 22,647 recovered.
