Update: We previously posted a story-video about lady having a meltdown in-flight due to flight diversion, well turns out she was a veteran suffering from PTSD.
“This morning a flight from Houston to Minneapolis had to land in Rochester, Minnesota due to a Guest experiencing a medical emergency,” Derek Dombrowski, spokesman for Spirit Airlines said in a statement. “On the ground in Rochester, another passenger became erratic and irate and was removed from the aircraft with the assistance of law enforcement. We apologize to our guests who had to witness this and for the inconvenience of the delay. Safety (is) our top priority at Spirit Airlines.”
Police sent that passenger to a hospital for mental health evaluation after they were told she is a military veteran battling PTSD.
“That saddens me,” a passenger said. “Now looking back at it all you just wish there was somebody on that plane (who) could have helped her at that moment.”
