Richard Marx, a singer best known for his song “Right Here Waiting,” was involved in the restraint of a passenger aboard a flight from Vietnam to South Korea, and there are pictures of the whole debacle.
Marx, who was traveling with his wife Daisy Fuentes, was on a flight from Hanoi to Seoul when a passenger began causing trouble for the flight crew. Marx was called upon to assist them, as they weren’t properly trained for the behavior of a dangerous passenger.
In an Instagram post from Fuentes, she commented that although she felt horrible for the attacks the passenger was making toward the attendants, pulling their hair and hitting them, the crew was never successful in completely restraining the passenger.

On our flight from Hanoi to Seoul a guy sitting in the next row from us got crazy & started attacking the flight attendants & passengers. When he started pushing the female staff and pulling them by the hair @therichardmarx was the first to help subdue him. This went on for FOUR hrs. I feel horrible for the abuse the staff had to endure but no one was prepared for this. They never fully got control of him. They didn't know how to use the taser & they didn't know how to secure the rope around him (he got loose from their rope restraints 3 times). I'll be posting some of the video after our next flight.
