In a report of Yahoo News, a Chinese woman was filmed tackled by crew members aboard a Thai Airways plane after she went rampage and deliberately coughed on a flight attendant because she was upset over a delay during coronavirus checks.

The female passenger reportedly became irate after being told that the plane was being held up for up to 10 hours after landing at the Shanghai Pudong Airport. Fellow passengers were shocked after she demanded to be let out after several hours cooped up inside the plane.

However, after being told to wait, the airline’s staff said that the woman began swinging her arms and deliberately coughing at one of the female staff, prompting colleagues to tackle her. One male crew member put her in a headlock to restrain her.

He called out the other six crew members to give him handcuffs but they managed to subdue her without restraining her hands. Passengers were eventually undergone COVID-19 health checks for passengers from risky countries.

Flight lieutenant Prathana Pattanasiri, vice president of Thai’s aviation safety department, said the airline was informed at the airport “there were measures to screen passengers with a history of traveling from risky countries such as Italy, South Korea, Japan, and Iran”.

“We could not open the doors of the plane until instructed to and health officials came to proceed with checks,” he said. “Therefore, Thai Airways had to wait for seven hours before officials arrived at the inspection queue.” He added.
