An American Airlines flight was delayed Friday by an altercation that passengers say started when a flight attendant ranted about the plane crashing.
Passengers said several people wrestled the flight attendant into a seat while the plane was still on the ground at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. Some passengers called 911, while others used the PA system to beg the pilot to return to the terminal.
In a passenger's video obtained by The Associated Press, a woman can be heard sobbing while another woman reassures her, "It's OK ... thank goodness we're on the ground."
A federal law enforcement official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation was continuing said that airport police determined the incident was a medical issue and not a security threat.
