Two men in a brolly brawl during cruise

Amy Bryant

Two feisty seniors get into a brawl over beach umbrellas and spilled beer. What a cracker of an image we’ve got in our heads right now!

Fists were waved and curse words exchanged between two senior men who were on a Caribbean beach. Yes, it gets better.

The men, from the US, were on a cruise ship that was docked at the island of Saint Kitts. What was an afternoon for guests to relax on the sandy shores of paradise was was short lived for many beachgoers when a brawl broke out between the two.

One man became enraged when there weren’t enough beach chairs and umbrellas.

He then began yelling at another man who was sitting under an umbrella, while other tourists where telling him to “shut the f***up. You’re f***ing everybody’s s**t up. Just shut up and sit down.”

The man with the backpack, deciding not to sit and calm down, proceeded to tip beer on another tourist.

That’s when the brawl really kicked off, with the furious man covered in beer leaping onto the man wearing the backpack. He began wrestling him in the sand, yelling “Let me tell you something right now motherf***er!”

A beach patrol officer, clearly embarrassed by the men’s appalling behaviour, told an onlooker, “I’m so sorry. It has nothing to do with us.”

The officers were able to break the the two away, with neither physically hurt but their dignity.

The video was uploaded to Youtube, with the post explaining, “When the group came to the beach there was not enough chairs and umbrellas to go around… The guy with the backpack was upset when he never got what he paid for.
