(Newser) – A female passenger became enraged after a Spirit Airlines flight had to divert for a medical emergency Monday, and she was caught on video screaming to be let off the plane before ultimately being escorted off the plane by police, ABC 13 reports. Flight 346 took off from Houston heading for Minneapolis, but after a male passenger was discovered to be unconscious, the plane made an emergency landing in Rochester, Minn., KHOU reports. In video shot by fellow passengers, the woman can be seen storming up and down the aisle of the plane shouting, among other things, "Get me the f--- off this f---ing plane" and "Do you know who my brothers are? They are f---ing Marine snipers. Do you want to f--- with a f---ing Marine?"

The man had already been taken off the plane for medical attention at the time, and the woman was eventually escorted off by police officers and taken to a hospital for a mental health evaluation. She ultimately made other arrangements to get home. A fellow passenger says the woman told him she is a military veteran with PTSD, and she reportedly told police she was traveling alone for the first time and panicked. Police say a third passenger, who was reportedly upset with the way the woman's situation was handled, also exited the plane in Rochester. As for the male passenger, his current condition was not being reported, but KAAL reports he was having a diabetic reaction and was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
