MANCHESTER - On Thursday afternoon, a woman was forced off a Southwest flight headed to Manchester-Boston Regional Airport after reportedly striking a man with a pen.
"My arm hurts because I was being stabbed by a pen, and that's why I made a lot of noise and the attendants came," said Lenny Mordarski as he described the incident.
Mordarksi said it all played out on his flight from Chicago to Manchester Thursday afternoon. His travel companion, Matt Sutton, said he saw the scene unfold.
"I guess his arm kind of brushed over to her," said Sutton. "He screamed really loud almost like a little girl."
The woman was forced off the flight in Chicago. Another passenger on the plane said she did not witness the incident, but the pilot announced they had to return to the gate to do some paperwork.
"I thought it was some emergency considering that there was an ambulance there, and I was
kind of looking to see if the flight attendants had taken somebody off the flight and put them in the ambulance," said passenger Ingrid Benda.
Mordarski did not suffer serious injuries.
