A United Airlines flight attendant was sent to the hospital after being assaulted on a flight from San Franciso to Chicago on Sunday morning.
Video taken by a passenger, Peter Kondelis, shows a woman holding her child and walking toward the back of the plane before being approached by a flight attendant.
“Where is it?” the woman yelled out after screaming in the plane’s aisle.
A flight attendant who blocked her from going forward, told her, “mam, we’re landing.”
“Sarah, step back,” the flight attendant said repeatedly.

A video recorded by another passenger and posted to Tiktok showed the altercation escalate to assault.
The woman can be seen putting her arm up against the flight attendant’s neck while saying, “I will kill you.”
“I will f***ing kill you,” she said.

The passenger claims the woman was mumbling phrases that were hard to understand but did hear the phrase, “Jesus Christ, our savior, was going to save us.”
A spokesperson for United Airlines related the following statement: “A disruptive customer on a flight from San Francisco to Chicago was removed by law enforcement upon landing on Sunday, and one member of the flight attendant crew was taken to a hospital for evaluation. We’re grateful to our crew for handling this difficult situation with professionalism and for putting the safety of our team and our customers first.”
Following the flight, three people were transported to the hospital but no serious injuries had been reported.
The FBI is also investigating the altercation, according to The Post.
