“Delta Air Lines contacted Detroit Metropolitan Airport’s police department requesting assistance with a passenger who would not comply with boarding and baggage check procedures at a McNamara Terminal gate,” the statement said.

In the video, passengers can be seen videotaping the woman being dragged by her arms down the middle aisle of a packed airplane. She is lying on her back and her eyes are closed, but she doesn’t appear to be struggling.

“Oh my God,” one passenger says on the video.
