A man can be seen punching a woman after knocking her to the ground and using her headphones as a weapon, which causes the spectators watching to yell louder.

Others can be seen holding a woman down by her hair as travel pillows and other items are seen lying around the baggage claim area. A woman who was knocked to the ground in the thick of the melee manages to stand up and leave the fight, leaving some of her vivid red braids on the floor.
