American Airlines suspends employee after clash over pram

A passenger who uploaded video of the aftermath of the incident said a mother had been struck with the pram as it was forcibly removed by the employee. American Airlines said it was "Deeply sorry for the pain we have caused" the woman passenger and her family. The incident follows another high-profile clash on a United Airlines plane two weeks ago, when a passenger was violently removed from an overbooked flight. Passenger Surain Adyanthaya, who posted the video to Facebook, said that preceding the footage the employee had "Violently" taken the pram from the mother, hitting her and narrowly missing her baby. One male passenger demands the name of the employee involved and when a man dressed in American Airlines uniform enters the plane, the passenger tells him: "Hey, bud, you do that to me and I'll knock you flat."
