NBC 10 reports the woman was on board US Airways flight #738 bound for Lisbon, Portugal, which was already delayed by nearly an hour.

Passenger Michael Irving told the station she began screaming that the plane wasn’t going to Brazil and started to swear.

Irving posted video to YouTube that shows police approaching the woman which only increased her screams.

After refusing an officer’s order to get up, he followed through on a threat to physically pick her up as she screamed, “This is harassment…I didn’t do anything wrong!”

As officers forcibly put her arms behind her back, she begins to swear at the officers and calls them “bigots” and “racists.”

The video shows a small girl covering her ears as the woman is taken past her seat down the aisle and off the plane.

She was taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania by police, according to NBC 10, who theorize the unidentified woman was having an anxiety attack.

A spokeswoman for US Airways told the station the woman was removed for “failing to comply with crew members, disruptions and disruptive behavior.”
