A man's profanity-laced temper tantrum over a crying baby aboard a Southwest flight traveling across Florida has gone viral after footage of the melee was released online this week. The plane, bound for Fort Lauderdale, was rerouted to Orlando after the incident "due to weather," a Southwest spokesperson told USA TODAY on Thursday.
"It was a little bumpy and uncomfortable for everyone and the child was upset, but we couldn't get up because of the weather, and we were strapped in our seats," Mark Grabowski, a passenger on the flight who recorded the video, told local station FOX 35.
