Smoking is not allowed on any Delta flight, but apparently having your seat kicked repeatedly is, at least according to one passenger. Sally Canario, was the victim of having her seat severely kicked on a recent Delta flight 1344 from Los Angeles to Minneapolis.

The victim claims that her seat was kicked so much during this flight that she is left with damage to her sternum and even bruised ribs as a result. When complaining to the flight attendants, they refused to move her to another seat or even take an injury report on this…

Per Fox 32,

A Delta Air Lines passenger says she was left with bruises all over one side of her body after another passenger’s child kicked her repeatedly — and the crew refused to let her change seats.

Sally Canario traveled from Los Angeles to Minneapolis on April 2, Fox News reports. She was in the window seat. Next to her were a mother and little girl, and she said the child laid her head in her mother’s lap and put her feet next to Canario.

“I flagged down a flight attendant to file an injury report,” Canario said. “His response was, ‘I am not a babysitter, you two parties need to work things out. This is a full flight. I do not take injury reports… you aren’t injured.”

Incredibly, the mother told Canario at the end of the flight that the girl’s daughter was seated elsewhere. Canario said she would have happily traded seats with him if she knew.
