A French airport employee punched a passenger holding a baby


An EasyJet employee at an airport in France punched a passenger in the face on Saturday while the victim was holding a baby.

The passenger was expected to travel on EasyJet flight 2122 from Nice to Luton airport on Saturday. Jean-François Guitard, a director at Nice airport, told CNN that the incident began when the flight was delayed for 11 hours. Guitard said that the passenger complained about the flight delay to an EasyJet employee, then the employee suddenly lashed out with a punch.

"It was awful the whole thing. I just can't believe people can behave like that," Arabella Arkwright, 49, who photographed the altercation, told CNN.

The airline began to investigate the incident on Saturday after pictures surfaced of the incident on Twitter.

The airline stated that the employee involved in the incident no longer works for the company.
