Police in Rochester, Minnesota were called to assist with a passenger on a Spirit Airlines plane who became enraged after the flight had to be diverted when another passenger became seriously ill.
The flight was bound for Minneapolis when a flight attendant noticed one passenger had gone into a coma, necessitating an emergency landing.
Responding to the change in plans, a woman on the flight erupted into a profanity-filled rant, running up and down the aisle and threatening her fellow passengers.
On video, the woman can be seen ranting, shaking her fists and menacing passengers — many of whom recoiled while others filmed the incident.
Police state that the woman — who they refused to identify — was taken to a local hospital for evaluation after they were told she was in the military and suffered from PTSD.
