Video captures passenger hysteria as bat flies around plane

Footage has emerged showing passengers panicking and screaming as a bat flies through an aircraft. 

Peter Scattini was aboard a Spirit Airlines flight from Charlotte, North Carolina, to Newark, New Jersey last week when he took footage of what he claims is a bat flying through the aircraft. 

In the video, passengers are in a flap and can be heard screaming and questioning what the object hanging around in the cabin actually is.

"The bat appeared about 30 minutes into the flight," Scattini said. 

"The bat was caught by a passenger between a book and a cup and was locked in the bathroom for the rest of the flight." 

Spirit Airlines has been approached for a comment.
