Drunk woman screams 'we are all going to die' as plane circles airport causing passenger to have seizure
The 41-year-old former personal assistant also reportedly continued to kick the seat in which the affected passenger's 15-year-old autistic daughter was sitting
A drunk woman onboard a Jet2 flight caused a fellow passenger to have a seizure after she screamed "we are all going to die".
The passenger, identified as Kiran Jagdev, reportedly drank eight beers and six wines before the outburst. She started screaming when the plane from Tenerife was circling over East Midlands Airport, according to the Daily Mail.
The 41-year-old former personal assistant also reportedly continued to kick the seat in which the affected woman's 15-year-old autistic daughter was sitting. Reports state that she even flirted with an off-duty police officer who was called to monitor her behavior after she created a ruckus. She was a reportedly heading back from a holiday trip, which she had taken alone.
According to Prosecutor Zoe Lee, Jagdev began screaming when the flight could not land the first time around and had to circle the airport.
Lee, while addressing the court, said: "The defendant screamed: 'We are all going to die'. The defendant’s unruly behavior directly brought about the stress which caused the mother of this girl to have a seizure on the flight."
"The family asked to be moved and were accommodated. Jagdev was repeatedly spoken to by fellow passengers and cabin crew but did not calm down," the prosecutor said, adding that she had between six to eight beers before she boarded the plane and then drank nearly four to six glasses of wine while she was on the flight, reports state.
"The cabin crew could see she was intoxicated and refused to serve her any more alcohol. She was then seen to be drinking alcohol she had brought onto the plane herself," Lee said.
Then an off-duty officer onboard the plane offered to sit next to her for the rest of the flight so that he could attempt to placate her.

The prosecutor said that the presence of the officer appeared to work at first, however, "She became flirtatious and he refused her advances. Then she became abusive and became much louder."
Jagdev was later arrested by the airport police when the plane landed at East Midlands Airport. According to Daily Mail, Jagdev's drinking problems began when she lost her unborn child and separated from her husband in 2015.
The former personal assistant from Leicester, while talking to the police, blamed the cabin crew for serving her alcohol and said that she had been in party mode. She eventually pleaded guilty to being drunk on the aircraft.
Reports state that Jagdev is due to be sentenced at Leicester Crown Court next month and has been given an unconditional bail.
