This is the moment an enraged customer at an airport desk picks up an airlines computer and throws it to the floor after she missed her flight.
The startling incident took place at the Jose Maria Cordova airport in the city of Rionegro, in the central north-western Colombian department of Antioquia after the passenger, reportedly drunk, missed her flight with airline VivaAir.

The airline explained to local media that the woman, who has not been named in reports, had turned up to the airport half an hour after boarding closed and she missed her flight.
In the video, the woman can be seen standing at the airline’s customer service desk and she leans over and picks up one of the computer screens.
She then lifts into the air before throwing it onto the floor and then walks over to another screen and knocks it over.
She can be heard saying “son of a b*tch” as she walks towards the worker recording and appears to try and slap him.
Local media report she was taken away from the scene by the police and arrested. Officers also helped the airline workers pick up the damaged screens.
VivaAir said: “She was a passenger on the flight 8054 flying the route MDE-BOG (Jose Maria Cordova airport to Bogota) scheduled for 11.40 am. The passenger arrived at 12.10 pm which caused her to miss the flight as she did not arrive in time. After missing her flight, she appeared at our sales point and spoke to our staff aggressively.”
Local media report she was arrested but later released for unknown reasons. Viva Air announced that they will report the case to prosecutors.
