The incident that took place on the United Airlines where a passenger got severely injured after being dragged by the aviation police was not even settled and now a video has come out where an American Airlines attendant got into a scuffle with a woman passenger travelling with her twins.
This happened on Friday on Flight 591 before it took off from San Francisco. The video of the incident was captured by one of the passengers Surain Adyanthaya who also posted it on his Facebook page that read, “AA Flight attendant violently took a stroller from a lady with her baby on my flight, hitting her and just missing the baby. Then he tried to fight a passenger who stood up for her”.
“They just in-voluntarily escorted the mother and her kids off the flight and let the flight attendant back on, who tried to fight other passengers. The mom asked for an apology and the AA official declined. I have videos of this too but we are taking off”, added Adyanthaya in his post.
The video shows a sobbing woman carrying two children asking the crew members to give back her stroller after which another passenger on the flight gets up and says ‘not going to sit here and watch this’ he asks attendants ‘what’s the name of the person who took the stroller”.
When the staff member who took stroller comes, the passenger says, “You do that to me and I’ll knock you flat” to which he replies, ‘You stay out of it’.
OMG! AA Flight attendant violently took a stroller from a lady with her baby on my flight, hitting her and just missing the baby. Then he tried to fight a passenger who stood up for her. AA591 from SFO to DFW.
