A new video shared online shows the sickening moment a man kicked an airline employee to the ground after she refused to pose for a second selfie with him and his friends during a drunken attack at an airport.
Le Thi Giang, who works for budget carrier Vietjet Air, had already been in one photograph with the trio at Tho Xuan Airport in the Thanh Hoa province of northern Vietnam. But when they asked her to pose with them for another selfie in the departure lounge, she politely declined, explaining she was on duty.
The three men – Le Van Nhi, 41, Le Trung Dung, 34, and Pham Huu An, 28 – then launched a savage attack on Ms Giang, slapping and kicking her to the floor.
The footage shows one of the men kicking her on her hip as she faces the other way, sending her falling to the floor, while his friends look on. After her colleagues and security officials approach, a scuffle ensues, during which another man in the trio punches a male member of staff before stumbling to the ground.
The three men, who witnesses said were drunk, were eventually subdued by security guards and taken to a local police station where they were charged with public disorder.
All three have now been jailed at Thanh Hoa Province court. Nhi faces a three-year prison sentence; Dung, two years and 10 months; and An, one year and 10 months.
