During the confrontation, an officer was suspended between a door and a crowd. One of them tried to remove the policeman’s mask while he was stuck screaming in pain.
The policeman is finally able to free himself from the trap. He seemed to say yes when asked if he was okay. The officer’s status is unknown, according to CNN.
