- Shocking footage shows staff and holidaymakers throwing punches and chairs
A mass brawl broke out between guests and staff at a Turkish hotel, with both sides hurling chairs and throwing punches at each other, shocking footage has shown.
The fight allegedly occurred late last month (July 31) at the Mirage World Hotel in İçmeler, Turkey, and is said to have involved British holidaymakers.
The shocking footage shows the holiday-goers in a mass brawl with hotel staff after a waiter allegedly slapped a teenager’s bum.
According to posts online, guests claimed there was a dispute between a British man and a staff member involving a young relative, leading to the man starting a fight.
This then led to a mass of ten hotel staffers attacking the Englishman – with one even launching a chair at him – the violent clip shows.

The shocking footage, captured by an unknown Brit on a balcony, shows a group of holidaymakers screaming as a member of staff can be seen landing a punch on a holiday-goer – all in front of a man believe to be the hotel manager.
The song Get Up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine by James Brown can be heard blaring in the background as the fight escalates.
The pair are seen brawling inside a circle of both holiday-goers and staff as the fight continues to get heated, with more members of staff jumping in to the fray.
Angry guests can be seen pushing the pair to the side as well as others who appear to have joined in whilst another member of staff can be seen getting pulled away from the middle of the chaos by a guest.
The fight appears to calm for a second until a member of staff charges into the man, before his colleagues jump in – savagely taking turns to land punches.
Meanwhile, the cameraman appears to be savouring the chaotic scenes as he laughs at the sight, repeatedly saying ‘Oh yeah’ as the fight ensues.
A member of staff then pulls out a black chair and swings it over his head, throwing the chair into the chaotic mass of brawlers.
The cameraman can be heard saying: ‘Oh, chair’s out.’
A guest then returns fire, throwing a chair back in the direction of the staff member, leading to a slew of furniture being thrown around as others scream at the terrifying situation.

The initial fighting holiday-goer then raises his arms to goad the staff on, who appear to be walking away.
However, other guests attempt to further defuse the situation, pushing him away in the other direction
One man – who looks to be younger than the others – appears to be falling unconscious as a result of the fight while a friend tries to hold him up.
The cameraman remarks: ‘Someone knocked out.’
One mediating member of staff – who earlier was hit by a chair – appears to come over to check that the man is okay as the fight ends and everyone disperses.
The footage was shared on Facebook by Sean Reay on August 5.
‘Check out how this escalates and how managers do nothing. This was this week; I’d be asking questions with your travel agent if coming here,’ he wrote.
The post received over 4,800 likes and 4,000 comments as many outraged viewers were quick to share their horror at the brutal fight.

Eddie Smith said: ‘The music! ‘Stay on the scene like a sex machine.’
Emma-Marie King commented: ‘The poor boy at the end couldn’t even stand.’
June Bellenie added: ‘Every one of them – waiters or workers – involved in that needs to be sacked. They would be out that gate bag and baggage if I was boss.’
MailOnline has contacted travel agency TUI, which counts Mirage World among its holiday destinations, as well as the hotel for comment on the incident.
