A YouTube star has bravely jumped in to save a man from being choked to death during a shocking display of road rage.
Comedian Luke Erwin, 26, captured disturbing footage of the bloody fight in Coomera, on the Gold Coast, on Monday afternoon and shared it on Instagram.
‘Disgusting road rage caught on camera. Violence is never okay, especially two on one,’ Erwin wrote.
‘We had to intervene, these guys were out of control, the dude could have lost his life.’

The confronting situation unfolded when the three men abandoned their cars at a set of traffic light and started throwing punches in the middle of the wet road.
While Erwin and two friends could be heard laughing from inside their vehicle at the beginning of the video, the tone took a turn when they realised someone’s life was in danger.
‘Should be break it up, or na?’ someone from behind the camera asked.
Seconds later, the video showed Erwin running over to save a blood-soaked father Filiti from being throttled to death.
‘Stay back, c***,’ Erwin shouted at the first shirtless attacker, as his friend tried to prise the second attacker’s elbow off the 32-year-old’s neck.

Young children could be heard screaming in the background and car horns were beeping as onlookers yelled for the fight to end.
Voice trembling, the cameraman approached the man who had his victim in a chokehold and said: ‘Stop, stop. Help him, please help him.’
‘Look you motherf***er, get off him c***,’ Erwin shouted, desperately trying to stop the attacker from killing his victim by pulling at his leg.

Filiti replied to Erwin’s video on Instagram: ‘I owe you a beer, brother.’
The father-of-three told Daily Mail Australia the fight started because he beeped at the pair when they nearly hit his car on the highway.
‘They abused me and wanted me to pull over. I should have just kept driving but I didn’t,’ he said.
When asked if he thought his attacker would kill him, the electrician replied: ‘Yeah he wasn’t stopping I’m glad Luke was there other wise I think he’d probably try to kill me.’
Despite the melee, Filiti waled away with just a cut on the nose.
A man who claimed to have been part of the brawl replied to the video on Instagram.
Police in Queensland said the incident was not reported.
