A woman had to be removed from a Spirit Airlines flight after going on profanity-laced tirade that alarmed fellow passengers.

The flight was diverted from Houston to Rochester, Minnesota due to a medical emergency. In a video recorded by flight passenger Chianti Washington, a woman is shown yelling and acting erratically while the plane is on the ground.

The woman's tirade is filled with expletives. 

 

At one point she yells, "Do you want to know what hell is? I've been there! Six times!"

Two men confronted the woman in an attempt to calm her down. She was eventually escorted off the aircraft but Washington says she did not go quietly and was screaming until she was off the plane. 

Washington also added that at least one flight attendant and a few passengers were crying after the ordeal.

According to KPRC, the woman told another passenger she is a military veteran and suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder.
