Woman apparently duct-taped to seat after trying to exit plane midflight

(The AEGIS Alliance) – A woman that was purportedly having a psychological breakdown mid-flight and attempted to open up a plane door was actually duct-taped onto her seat, which was quite the scene for travelers that observed her while they got off the airplane.

The incident occurred on Friday during an American Airlines flight, according to TMZ.

“While in flight from Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) to Charlotte (CLT) on July 6, the crew onboard American Airlines flight 1774 reported a potential security concern after a customer attempted to open the forward boarding door and physically assaulted, bit, and caused injury to a flight attendant,” American Airlines said in a press release.

“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,” the airline added.

While American Airlines didn’t indicate in what way the woman was restrained, one traveler or more captured video of a woman who had been duct-taped to a seat on the airplane and then uploaded it to TikTok.

TikTok has since made the video unavailable to view that revealed an unknown lady in a seat in first-class with duct tape over her upper body as well as over her mouth, according to Business Insider. The woman was evidently trying to scream and yell at travelers departing the flight.

The user who uploaded the video to TikTok was @lol.ariee who pointed out the scuffle started around the midway point of the two-hour trip.

“All flight attendants were running up and down the aisles, frantically kind of like whispering to each other,” she said.

The flight crew was securing the restroom and getting bags from the overhead containers yet hadn’t told travelers about the incident, she claimed.

As the aircraft landed, a flight attendant described that a woman had a noticeable psychological breakdown and also had tried to exit the airplane in mid-flight.

Upon the plane landing on the ground, the woman was taken to a medical facility, she is currently on American Airlines’ no-fly list.
