United Airlines confirmed an incident with a disruptive passenger occurred in Chicago on Sunday.
A video posted to TikTok showed a woman with a baby telling a flight attendant: “I will kill you.”
Chicago Police responded to the incident and the FBI is investigating.
A woman carrying a baby on a red-eye flight from San Francisco to Chicago early Sunday morning was captured on video confronting a flight attendant and threatening to kill her.
The video, which has gone viral on TikTok, shows the woman in a physical confrontation with a flight attendant while holding a child on her hip. It’s unclear what preceded the video, but the woman can be heard saying: “I will kill you. I will fucking kill you.”
The flight attendant keeps saying “ma’am” and another one tells the woman she needs to take her seat, but the woman continues to push herself down the aisle.
