2018-10-11 01:45
A woman who brought an “emotional support” squirrel on a plane in Orlando and then refused to leave the aircraft, remained defiant as she was led past disgruntled passengers forced to disembark from the Cleveland-bound flight on October 9. Local media reported that the woman noted in her reservation that she would bring an “emotional support” animal with her but did not indicate it would be a squirrel. Cleveland 19 reported that the woman refused to exit the aircraft when confronted and as a precaution, the other passengers were asked to exit the cabin. This footage, shared by Brandon Nixon, shows a crowd clapping as a woman in a wheelchair is pushed through the airport. She is seen thanking people as she is wheeled away. WESH 2 said that the plane took off two hours after the incident. Credit: Brandon Nixon via Storyful
