Girl sues airline for doing nothing to stop man as he masturbated next to her

Washington, May 31 (ANI): United Airlines has just been accused of allowing a male passenger to masturbate next to a 17-year-old girl on board one of its flights last year.

Monica Amestoy, now 18, has filed a lawsuit against the airline, in which she has claimed that a male passenger seated across the aisle from her exposed his penis to her during the flight and masturbated, reported.

She was flying back to L.A, from a high school debate tournament in New York.

Amestoy told Allread that she complained to a flight attendant multiple times but they did nothing to stop the man.

She asserted that neither she was moved from her place nor was the passenger addressed in any way.

Amestoy said that man stopped masturbating for a while when the flight attendant was nearby, but quickly resumed once the flight attendant left.

The man in question has since been arrested, prosecuted, and convicted in connection with the alleged crime.

He has also been ordered to register as a sex offender.

Amestoy is suing for negligence, false imprisonment, and intentional infliction of emotional distress demanding unspecified damages. (ANI)
