Irish holidaymaker caught in this crazy 17-man street brawl in Turkey (Video)

One minute you’re enjoying a quiet holiday away, the next minute you’re in the middle of a crazy street brawl.

That’s what happened to this guy, who is believed to be an Irish tourist on holiday in Turkey.

Footage emerged on Twitter of the huge fight in Asksaray, a neighbourhood of Istanbul, earlier this month.

It appears to start when the Irish man spills a load of water bottles out of a shop fridge, then it rapidly escalates into a pitched battle.

The holidaymaker was hit with chairs and a baseball bat, but still manages to floor one of his attackers and fend off more with kicks and punches.

Turkish police are still trying to piece together what happened. Madness.
