A father-of-one was horrified when a train station worker hurled a barrage of abuse at him after he asked for access to a first aid kit.
Tibi Moravckik, 45, from Tunbridge Wells, went to the Southeastern staff member’s counter to ask for help after falling from his bicycle near High Brooms railway station.
While at the counter he says he was insulted by the railway worker and took out his camera to film as the man told him to ‘get out of this f***ing station now.’
The video shows Mr Moravckik show his bloodied wrist to the camera before the station worker walks quickly around and out in to the middle of the station.

Walking towards Mr Moravckik the man aggressively tells him to leave.
The cyclist said: ‘I came to the station and told him something like “I need a ticket to London, but first please could you help me with a first aid kit? I had an accident on my bike going downhill to the station”.’
Mr Moravckik appears to be standing quietly at the counter when the railway worker suddenly snaps and makes his way around to the customer’s side of the counter.
He called 999 after the encounter and says they ‘were nice’, gave him first aid and asked him what happened.
‘They were really professional. One officer helped me and the other spoke with him and watched the station’s CCTV,’ he added.
But the experience left him feeling ‘disappointed’, especially as he works as a security guard who had helped an injured girl just a few weeks before.
He said: ‘I was really disappointed from his reaction. He did not try to help at all. Instead he was angry and aggressive.

‘I cannot imagine reacting like that in his shoes. I work as security in a local pub.
‘Just a few weeks ago I saw a girl with an injury on another side of the road. We helped her to our pub and gave her first aid.
‘How somebody can be such antisocial? No empathy at all? I don’t want this situation to happen again.
‘I hope that the member of staff will be trained properly to give first aid, or he should be moved to different position, where he doesn’t have contact with customers.’
