Imagine getting on your flight from Dallas-Fort Worth back home to Charlotte, North Carolina, and having to deal with this! If crying babies weren’t enough on flights, how about a woman gone mad. The 190 passengers of American Airlines Flight 1774 had to endure an unsettled woman during their two-hour flight.
Elizabeth LaClair was sitting in Row two when she heard a woman sitting behind her say to the man next to her that she did not want the plane “to fly up anymore.” Suddenly, the woman who appeared to be in her 30s ran to the door and tried to open it, LaClair said. This is when flight attendants sprung into action! They restrained the woman and duct-taped her wrists and feet with what appeared to be zip-tied to her seat.
“For the safety and security of other customers and our crew, the individual was restrained until the flight landed at CLT and could be met by law enforcement and emergency personnel,” American said in a statement. A video posted on TikToj shows the incident happening. You can see it below.
After landing, the woman was brought to a hospital for evaluation. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police were also present at the landing, according to American Airlines.
