A Delta passenger has claimed she suffered bruised ribs after a child repeatedly kicked her on a Minneapolis-bound flight.
Sally Canario was on an overnight flight from Los Angeles to Minneapolis on April 2 when the violent incident occurred, The Sun reported.
“I was up against the window, trying to get some sleep on a red-eye flight,” she said to The Sun. “A stranger’s daughter was trying to sleep on the plane with her head in her mother’s lap and her feet in my face, in my side, and on my lap. The girl threw a bad tantrum — screaming, crying, and bicycle kicking while she was trying to sleep, [but] the airline would not accommodate me for a safer, comparable seat.”
The mother of three claims that she asked a flight attendant for help but was allegedly told he could not help her.
“I flagged down a flight attendant to file an injury report,” she told The Sun. “His response was, ‘I am not a babysitter, you two parties need to work things out. This is a full flight. I do not take injury reports… you aren’t injured.”
Canario said the incident on the flight has left her with cartilage damage.
“I am hurting on my chest from my sternum to my right rib cage,” she told The Sun. “It is visible asymmetry of my rib cage. My doctor assured me cartilage will heal but be painful for the next week.” However, Canario said she does not blame the family but instead blames Delta’s seating policies.
