Publish date:

A Spirit Airlines flight from Houston on its way to Minneapolis was diverted to Rochester, Minnesota for a medical emergency on Monday, and once on the ground a passenger became irate and demanded to be let off the plane. 

Video taken by fellow passenger, Chianti Washington, shows a woman running up and down the aisle, screaming obscenities and shouting at flight attendants to get her off the plane. 

At one point the woman is confronted by two men who ask her to calm down. She shook her fist at one of them, then telling them that her brothers are snipers in the Marine corps.

The video ends when the woman walks past Washington's row, at which point she seems exhausted and is beginning to cry.
