Angry passenger assaults Shenzhen airport clerk and leaves her lying in pool of blood

A clerk at Shenzhen Baoan Airport was left lying in a pool of her own blood after being viciously attacked by an irate passenger.

The passenger had wanted help with printing his friend's itinerary and was asked for his identification -- which he did not have.

Indignant at not getting his itinerary, the man then assaulted the Juneyao Airlines employee with a 'ticket counter' sign.

The man was subsequently detained by police who arrived at the scene.

According to Shanghaiist, the airline also released a statement and said:

"Regarding the assault incident at Shenzhen Baoan Airport, Juneyao Airlines is already investigating the situation. We condemn the actions of the man who hurt our employee and in the future, will work to protect the rights of all workers."
