A shocking video shows the moment when heroic rescuers knock a man unconscious as he grabs a woman by her hair and tries to drown her in a public fountain.

The 52-year-old man – who has not been identified and is now charged with attempted murder – was cooling off in the water with the woman on Tuesday, Aug. 9.

A passerby offered to take a photo of them while they were in the fountain in a park in Valencia, Spain, and fled when the man handed him his cell phone.

The man thought his acquaintance was involved in the theft and tried to drown her in the fountain, according to local media.

Phone footage of the nail-biting fight shows the shirtless crook – who appears to be intoxicated – roughly grabbing the woman’s hair and forcing her head toward the water.
