Woman on American Airlines flight duct-taped to seat after she tried to open the door

In the video, filmed by TikTok user @lol.ariee, an unidentified woman in first class can be seen with duct tape around her chest and mouth as she attempts to scream at passengers who are departing the plane after it landed.

In a follow-up video, @lol.ariee explained that the commotion started one hour into the two-hour flight when "all flight attendants were running up and down the aisles, frantically kind of like whispering to each other."

The crew began locking bathrooms, and started grabbing bags from overhead bins, but wouldn't say what exactly was happening, @lol.ariee said...

As the plane was landing, a flight attendant who sat near the passengers explained that a woman who was going through an apparent mental breakdown "had an outburst" and attempted to get off the plane.
