You know what you should do at an airport when you miss your flight? You should freak out and go on a rampage, destroying everything in your path. Okay, that’s not what you should do. But a Chinese official thought that was the right thing to do after missing his flight recently.
Yan Linkun, a deputy chairman of the state-owned Yunnan Mining Corporation, was caught on video smashing two computers, along with a few other items in his path, at Kunming Airport. The day started out well for Linkun – he arrived at the airport in plenty of time and decided to have a leisurely breakfast with his sons. It seems that they spent a little too much time over their food, because they arrived too late to board. He had his flight switched to 1 pm, but he managed to miss that one as well. And that’s when he had a meltdown.
Watch the video below and you’ll see Linkun going into Hulk mode, smashing computer monitors and trying to break the glass doors with a signboard. Security just let him throw a tantrum, and it turns out he wasn’t arrested.
As a result of the video, Linkun has been suspended from his job. He has since apologized for his actions.
