We’ve all been there – that heartstopping moment when you’ve missed your flight by the skin of your teeth and no amount of cajoling will get you through the departure gate.
But not all of us have gone where this chap went – specifically one Yan Linkun, a member of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC).
Upon missing his flight from China's Kunming Changshui International Airport, Linkun proceeded to fling one heck of a tantrum, smashing computer equipment and trying to break down a window, Beijing Cream reports.
Once he’d been restrained, Linkun, who was travelling with his wife and children, revealed it was actually the second set of flights the family had missed.
The Telegraph reports the clan had missed their first journey because they had been having breakfast.
Upon missing the second lot of flights, that’s when the Linkun erupted, notes GoKunming.
Linkun has since apologised for his actions, saying that he "failed to be a qualified political advisor as well as a good father," and adding he was angry only because he wanted get back home in time to send his two sons to school. In Linkun's apology to the airport's deputy manager, Wang Jinsheng, Linkun said he was sorry to everyone.
"My irrational actions and rudeness have caused some losses to the airport as well as bad effects to the public, so I sincerely apologise to the airport and public. I am willing to compensate," he said, according ShanghaiDaily.com.
Though the video shows airport security failing to stop Linkun or arrest him after he had calmed down, he has been suspended from work and could possibly face criminal charges.
