A woman was caught on video going ballistic aboard a Spirit Airlines plane that made an emergency landing because of a medical emergency — leaving other passengers and at least one flight attendant in tears, according to reports.
The Houston-to-Minneapolis flight was forced to divert to Rochester, Minn., when a man required medical help about an hour into the trip.
“The attendant thought that he was just sleeping but he was actually in a coma,” passenger Stephanie Calder told KHOU.
That’s when a passengerlaunched into a disturbing, expletive-filled tantrum on a Spirit Airlines flight on Monday, shaking up passengers and crew and pushing them to tears. The irate female passenger erupted in a meltdown that was caught on video.
“Get me the f— off this god-damn f—— plane!” the woman yells at one point. “You want to be s—– and b—– to me? You’ll see me f—— pissed.”
The woman can be seen going up and down the aisle as other passengers attempt to calm her down.
Passenger Chianti Washington posted video of the incident on Monday and said everyone on the flight was affected.
“Just to be in that confined space when someone that is going through something very traumatic in their life and there’s nothing you can do,” she told Click 2 Houston.
“There’s nowhere you can go.”
Matters reportedly came to a head after the aircraft landed.
The irate woman can be seen in the video marching up and down the aisle and launching a profanity-laced and threatening tirade.
“All of a sudden that’s where the lady came running from the back of the plane,” Calder said. “She started saying she’s not going to calm down and wanted off the plane and such.”
She said she quickly became worried about her 15-year-old daughter’s safety.
“I worried [she] was going to go even more irate and so I just put my back toward my daughter and shielded my daughter in case this woman decided to,” Calder told the station.
“I was one row behind the emergency exit door. Now, we were landed but who knows what this woman could have done.”
