A woman who made “security threats” on a flight between Dallas and Charlotte was restrained from her seat with duct tape last week. In the video recorded by another passenger, you can see that she is still attached to the seat (see above).
According to American Airlines, the woman tried to open the door of the plane, then injured a flight attendant, who bit and spat.
The incident occurred in July 1774 on a flight from Dallas, Texas to Charlotte, North Carolina on July 6, with 190 passengers on board.
“For the safety of other customers and our crew, the person was detained until the plane landed and could be attended by police and emergency personnel,” the statement said.
After landing, the woman was sent to the hospital for an assessment.
According to the passenger who posted the video, the cabin lights were turned on at 1:30 a.m. There was an unusual movement by the flight attendants, who ran to the scene, and the woman, during a tense break, apparently tried to open the door – which was impossible, according to American Airlines.
Witnesses say he told her he wanted to get off the plane and that the flight attendants had to release her when she knocked on the door.
