Two-time France boxing champion Tarik Sahibeddine neutralized a rowdy passenger of a Lufthansa flight, who tried to seize the plane, which was en route from Munich to Paris.
As journalist Arno Romero wrote on his Facebook page, the malcontent active aggressively and tried to enter the cockpit in order to force the pilots to change the course.
However, 46-year-old Sahibeddin prevented the hijacking as he threw the man on the floor and tied him, allowing the crew to successfully continue the flight.
