(ASSOCIATED PRESS) DALLAS -- Two crew members on an American Airlines plane were injured Friday after an altercation that passengers say started when a flight attendant ranted about the plane crashing.
The incident happened while the plane was preparing to take off from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport and fly to Chicago.
Bethany Christakos of Dallas, seated toward the rear of the plane, said passengers started "freaking out" as one of the flight attendants gave a rambling, 15-minute speech on the plane's public-address system.

"She said, 'I'm not responsible for this plane crashing,'" Christakos said.
