This is the moment a teenager repeatedly kicks the head of a floored rival like a football before being chased off by a girl during a fight outside a nightclub.
The incident was filmed outside the Oxum nightclub in the city of Juan Jose Castelli in the northern Argentine province of Chaco, and the video was later widely circulated on Facebook.
In the clip, dozens of onlookers are seen gathered around two men brawling in the street.
A topless man is lying on the tarmac trying to get to his feet as his teen rival repeatedly ‘boots’ him in the head as if it was a football.
While everyone else does nothing to help the defenceless man, a young woman rushes over and stops the 18-year-old from inflicting further damage.
Another woman is heard saying: “How can you kick his head like that?”
The woman who stopped the fight, whose name was not reported, told local media: “I intervened with my sister to stop him kicking the guy. He wasn’t able to defend himself anymore and was passing out. That is why we got involved, because everyone else was just egging him on.”
The 21-year-old victim, identified as Jose Ernesto Hosman, has reportedly filed a complaint against his teen rival in the footage.
Meanwhile, the 18-year-old suspect has been arrested and remains in police custody as the investigation continues.
Local media said the Oxum nightclub belongs to Lorena Ivanoff who is the niece of Chaco governor Juan Carlos Baclieff Ivanoff.
