Video showing a Chinese woman’s three-minute meltdown at the Hong Kong Airport has become a YouTube sensation.

After missing her flight to San Francisco, the woman throws a tantrum that was filmed by an employee of the airline Cathay Pacific.

She is seen screaming at the departure gate and then falls to the ground wailing "I want to go! I want to go!" in Cantonese while an older man traveling with her tries to get her on her feet.

"Don’t be so upset, don’t be so emotional," a Cathay Pacific employee is heard saying on the video.

"All passenger doors had already been closed and the crew was preparing the flight for departure," said an airline spokeswoman.

"As the passengers had failed to show up on time, we had already offloaded their checked baggage to comply with the security requirements."

 According to the airline the incident took place earlier this month, and the video found its way to YouTube last week. The video now has over 800,000 views.

The woman in the video has not been identified but Cathay Pacific said it was able to put her on a flight a couple hours later.

    It “was filmed by an employee of the airline Cathay Pacific”?

    Doesn’t anyone else have a problem with this? She behaved disgracefully in a public place and so, had a member of the public filmed her actions and posted them on YouTube, it would have been no more than she deserved.

    But a member of staff from the airline? That’s not right.

    Oh man- I would have given up a weeks pay to see this asshole tazed. It would have been even more hilarious to see the subtitle say “Don’t taze me Bro! – Don’t taze me Bro! ”

      Now that the trend is to build an all-in-one device, it’s pretty strange to see that they decided to build a social media thing that’s not a phone… i’m sure they can build all those apps for an iPhone …. or any other smart phone. Now the customers will decide, let’s wait and see how they react…

    That comment about using a taser is disgusting – goes to show just how easy these lethal weopons will become in the future if you think this is a justified reason for electrocuting someone! Tasers are LETHAL – just like using a gun – use a taser and be prepared for a death as a result!
