Edward Heerema sat in the lounge of the luxurious Jumeirah Beach Hotel , when his attention was drawn by four Russian children who misbehaved. He spoke to them several times on their behavior, and when that did not help, Edward Heerema complained to the manager. Eventually he retired but back in his hotel room.

There he was called by the manager, who wanted to talk it incident with the father of the children, in the presence of the now police arrived. But when the Russian Edward Heerema saw coming, he thought for a moment and hit him in the face so hard that he flew through the air; “The blood splattered all over the place!”, says the Telegraph . The Russian could be arrested right away, but Edward Heerema is no longer able to work normally.

It is noteworthy that the millionaire was so vulnerable because he has four bodyguards normally. He also refused to cooperate with his listing in the Fortune 500, “Due to security, we do very little publicity in the Netherlands, says his PR manager. In Dubai, he walked around unprotected because he imagined safe at this top hotel. The Fortune 500 is Edward Heerema in place 43. The ability of him and his four brothers together amounted to € 550 million.
