A video uploaded Friday showed a Melbourne tram worker kicking three teenagers from his tram in a physical altercation
When the boy started yelling at the tram driver with his arm in a makeshift sling, he initially closed the door separating him from the passengers.
The boy called the driver a “f**king dog” and said they were on their way to the hospital.
He became increasingly aggressive before the driver came out of his barricaded section and physically removed the boy and his two friends from the vehicle.
The boys continued to curse and fight as the driver removed them.

Commenters on the video applauded the driver’s efforts and said he had done the right thing by throwing the boys off the tram.
“Finally someone who isn’t afraid of lanky little kids,” one wrote.
‘Good of him! tram drivers don’t deserve the abuse,” said another.

“That last guy wasn’t even with them, he just grabbed a random eshay and threw it,” another commenter joked.
However, some commentators condemned the tram driver for throwing out a teenager in need of medical care.
“His yelling that he needs a hospital with a broken arm then throws him around…yes so safe,” one person wrote.
