An 18-year-old has shared her ordeal alleging she was groped by a man sat behind her on a Spirit Airlines flight.

“On my flight to California the man behind kept touching my arms and boobs,” the video voiceover says.

“And when I confronted him and showed the video to everyone around me and the flight attendants I was told to sit down and stay quiet 😐. F you spirit airlines.”
