Stunned Straphangers Look On As Women Brawl Over Seat On L Train In Brooklyn

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Passengers riding an L Train in Brooklyn Tuesday watched in amazement as two women brawled over a seat.

Video of the incident was recorded by a straphanger with an iPhone and posted to YouTube. It took place around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday as the train was headed from Morgan Avenue to Jefferson Street in Brooklyn.

One of the women was pushing a baby in a stroller when a profanity-filled verbal spat began and quickly escalated into a full-fledged street fight.

WARNING: Video Contains Violence And Strong Language

The two women involved -- one wearing a blue shirt and another in white -- could be seen yelling and ripping at each other's hair. Some passengers tried to intervene, while most moved away or watched stunned.

The passenger who posted the video said others on board the train helped take care of the child until one of the women involved stepped off the train when the fight was over.
