Cape Town – It seems flying is getting more and more dangerous, and one can never be too sure of what to expect the next time one travels.

The latest incident involves a male passenger groping a woman’s breast for five whole minutes, on a recent British Airways flight from London to San Francisco, the Daily Mail reports.

The vicitim, who was casually taking a nap on a flight (like many of us do while flying), was suddenly met by a man’s hands who thought it was okay reach over from behind, place his hand down her shirt, and made skin-to-skin contact with her breast.

It gets worse

Passengers watched as this whole incident took place and did nothing to try and prevent, or interrupt the situation. When the victim woke up to find the groper fondling her, he quickly removed his hand and fled down the aisle.

Fortunately, you can’t run too far in an airplane, and the victim was eventually caught and has been charged with with simple assault in a misdemeanor complaint.

Basically, you can’t be too safe and we urge all travellers to remain vigilant throughout their travels.
