A Delta Air Lines employee allegedly slapped a phone out of a 13-year-old boy’s hand, as he filmed people’s reaction to flight delay announcements.

Matthew Boggan, from New York, claims the worker was five feet away from him when she “grabbed” the phone and “hit it really hard” before it fell from his right hand.

His family claim that Matthew got his phone out and began to record passengers’ reactions to the announcement that the flight would be delayed, when the phone was hit out of his hand.

The teenager said he was luckily able to catch the phone with his other hand when it was knocked out of his grasp.(snip)

Matthew’s flight was reportedly delayed several times due to weather conditions.

It was scheduled to take off at 6.50pm and ended up departing at 2.30pm the next day, and the family received repeated text messages alerting them to the delays.

They claim they were forced to sleep on the floor near the gate while waiting.
