Airline passenger’s violent response to kid kicking her seat
Children are not everyone’s cup of tea, however one woman has proven her disdain knows no bounds.
One airline passenger in the US let frustration get the best of her on a flight after punching a fellow passenger, allegedly because her child would not stop kicking the back of her seat.
She has learnt her lesson the hard way however, as she has since been charged with assault.
Daydrena Jaslin Walker-Williams, 29, admitted that she hit Nataly Hernandez “two to three times with her fist” after their Spirit Airlines flight landed in Portland, Oregon, on Sunday.
Ms Walker-Williams claimed that during the flight, Ms Hernandez ignored requests to tell her kids to stop kicking the back of her seat.
It is also alleged that Ms Hernandez had hit her “on the shoulder” after one such request.
Ms Walker-Williams removed her luggage from the overhead locker once they reached Portland International airport and it was then that she struck Ms Hernandez, causing injuries to her head and lip.
Police said several witnesses saw this however they could not verify whether Ms Hernandez had provoked the altercation.
“You do what you got to do,” Ms Walker-Williams reportedly told police after the incident, The Oregonian reports.
Ms Walker-Williams is now facing charges of assault and harassment.
