"What I saw was the flight attendant in the front suddenly start screaming "No, No, No! Stop!", and running toward the back. I thought maybe someone was trying to open the back doors at first, but the woman in the back was attacking the flight attendant, punching her in the head. While the flight attendant was staggering back with a bloody face, we were all told to stay in our seats."
You can watch the woman be removed from the plane here.
