Sitting next to an upset child is every airline passenger’s worst fear – but a YouTube video taken by a passenger on a Lufthansa flight from Germany to New Jersey in August takes it to another level.

The Daily Mail first reported the video, which shows a child yelling, climbing on a seat, and running through the aisles. The video, titled “Demonic child screams and runs through an 8 hour flight from Germany to Newark,” suggests the child was disruptive throughout the entire flight.

“That was a nightmare – eight hours of screaming,” a person is heard saying at the end of the video.

Some viewers on Twitter sympathized with the child and his mother, arguing that the child may have a condition that would make air travel uncomfortable.

“I have one of these at home,” one person wrote. “He drives me nuts. Nothing mum can do and I feel for her.”

Others criticised them.

“With parenting like this, that kid’s destined to be President one day,” one person said.

Lufthansa declined to comment on the matter.

Here’s what others on Twitter had to say about the video:
