VIRAL VIDEO: Slim Russian Cashier Girl KO's Unruly Man in Store, Becomes Famous

This post first appeared on Russia Insider

A frail cashier from the city of Vladimir became famous on social media. Karina Eremeeva knocked out a raving customer.


It's 1 a.m. There are a lot of customers in a 24-hour store. Two customers are determining who's the first in line. One of them is obviously winning the dispute by using the fridge with beer. A frail girl ran from the counter and resolved the issue with a right hook. The bully began to resent, but then received a straight blow to the jaw, and was knocked out. The rescued, drunk customer rushed to thank the cashier.

This video was taken by a surveillance camera in a store in Vladimir two years ago but it appeared on the web just now. It became popular in just a few days. The heroine of the video became world famous. Karina Eremeeva is a mother of two. She's currently on maternity leave. She agreed to show on the spot how it all happened.

Karina Eremeeva: "I feared for the man. I really thought that he would now crack his head, and that would be too bad. That's why it all happened. And the final blow... Many people think that is was without cause. No, there was a cause. The man began to make threats, and he also spat at me, so I reacted like that."

Karina started practicing boxing when she was in school. That's why she didn't even think about the alarm button. She just went and resolved the issue. The video doesn't show it, but Karina also provided first-aid to the guy she knocked out. The man broke his leg when he fell. After that, he began to respect Karina so much that he didn't let anyone else approach him.

Karina Eremeeva: "And before the ambulance arrived, I had to take chilled food from that fridge and put frozen pelmeni on his leg to cool it. Then, when the ambulance staff arrived, he wouldn't let a doctor apply a splint. So, I had to do it myself. I had some skills and I did it under the guidance of the ambulance staff. My mother worked for 25 years in medicine.Э

The outlet's management paid a bonus to the girl for her dedication. Now, they're looking forward to her return from maternity leave. She can work as a cashier, a guard, and a nurse.

Samvel Avakyan, manager: "A tiny, frail girl knocked out an adult man with just one blow. When she returns from maternity leave... Of course, we should appreciate such employees. They should work in such places."

British UFC fighter Darren Till noticed Karina's well-aimed blow. He posted the video on Instagram and wrote: "Play with feathers get ye arse tickled." The video has 500,000 views. Karina herself says that she doesn't even think about her unexpected fame. She has other things to do. Her youngest son will be one year old in a few days. By the way, her work also helped her meet her future husband.

Andrey Eremeev: "I met her at that store. And as soon as we met, she had to leave because I wasn't fine with the fact that she worked in a night store. She's a girl, after all."

Karina Eremeeva: "I liked it despite all of those circumstances. It gives you certain energy, after all. A lot of people came, I talked with them, I liked it. And I'd like to continue to work in sales. We'll see what happens, whether it'll my own business or if I'll be an employee.Э

By the way, Karina doesn't practice boxing anymore. She got a back injury at practice. She says that the fight in the 24-hour store was the only time in her life when she had to apply the obtained skills in practice.
