Chaos erupted over the skies of southeast Asia yesterday when a man on a Hanoi to Seoul Korean Air flight began attacking crew members and other passengers. Luckily for everyone, adult contemporary star Richard Marx and his wife, former MTV VJ Daisy Fuentes, were on board to help subdue the raging passenger.

TMZ reports the two had to help restrain the man for four hours and two minutes. At least one crew member was injured in the flight-long scuffle, according to the gossip site.

Marx described parts of the ordeal on his Twitter account, where he also shared several photos, including one of him apparently holding part of a rope used to tie the passenger to his seat.

The flight eventually landed safely in Seoul, where police reportedly arrested the violent passenger.

UPDATE: Fuentes also documented the incident on her Instagram account:
