In a shocking incident, a woman was tied to her seat by airline staff after she repeatedly took off her underwear mid-flight. The 39-year-old female passenger on a Russian flight had to be tied down with a rope and tape as she started wandering aimlessly around the cabin as soon as the plane took off. It is believed that the woman was under the influence of drugs which caused the chaos.
Daily Mail reports that within 15 minutes of departure of the flight from Vladivostok, the woman got up from her seat and started walking around the cabin. After that, the woman started taking off her clothes and putting them on again. The woman seemed to be disoriented as she ignored the repeated orders of the cabin crew.
As the chaos continued despite multiple requests, the flight attendants and some of the other passengers teamed up and decided to tie up the woman to her seat after fearing for her own safety as well as the comfort of other passengers. A rope, seat belt and sticky tape was used to stop the woman from causing any harm to herself and other passengers as she was tied to her seat for the rest of the flight.
The plane was headed to Tolmachevo airport in Novosibirsk, Siberia, where the woman was taken away and arrested when the plane reached its destination safely.
In a video shared by Daily Mail, the woman can be seen tied to her seat after her ‘erratic behavior.’
According to Daily Mail, after she was taken to a police station, the woman admitted to having taken a synthetic drug before boarding the flight in Vladivostok.
Russia’s interior ministry shared that the woman was taken for a medical examination to find out exactly how intoxicated she was.In footage,she was seen to be emptying the contents of her handbag at what appeared to be a police station.
Daily Mail reports that she is facing low-level charges of ‘petty hooliganism’, as stated by the interior ministry. The police have launched an investigation into the matter.
