3 Women Allegedly Attack Airline Employees Caught on Camera
FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida — Several Spirit Airlines employees were injured Tuesday night when they were attacked by three women who were apparently upset that their flight from Fort Lauderdale to Philadelphia had been delayed, sheriff’s officials said.
The women hit the employees with “miscellaneous items, such as phones, shoes, full water bottles, metal boarding signs and fast food,” according to Broward County Sheriff’s Office arrest reports. The incident happened outside the gate of a flight to Philadelphia in the airport’s Terminal 4.
The airline said three employees at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport suffered minor injuries when the women “became combative following a delayed flight.”
WPLG posted video of the attack, which shows the women throwing items at the employees and going behind the counter where they physically attacked at least one person.
