Hawaiian Airlines: Passengers treated after pepper spray goes off in cabin

Passengers on a Hawaiian Airlines flight were treated by medical personnel after a can of pepper spray went off inside the plane’s cabin.

Last week, after the plane landed in Kahului, passengers on board were treated for respiratory issues after a passenger apparently brought a pepper spray can on the aircraft illegally.

The can then discharged three hours into the flight between Oakland, California and the island in the Pacific, according to a report by Fox News.

A video posted to social media demonstrates medical officials boarding the aircraft to investigate the incident.

The airline noted that the discharge was accidental, but it did cause many passengers to leave their seats and a baby vomited due to the spray.
