The woman reportedly had a 'mental breakdown' nearly an hour after the three-hour-long flight from Dallas-Fort Worth to Charlotte, NC, reported New York Post. At one point, she tried to open the door of the flight to get out of it. The video explains how the pilot requested other passengers on the flight to stay in their seats and mentioned "a bad situation in the plane".
