VIDEO: Flight Grounded After Passengers Spot Fuel Leak

A United flight leaving from New Jersey to Venice, Italy was cancelled this week due to a large fuel leak. 

Rachel and Mike Brumfield were on their honeymoon, captured video of the fuel spilling onto the tarmac from the wing. According to Fox News Insider:

Mike alerted the flight crew, who dismissed him, Rachel said.

“He’s like, ‘But something’s not right.’ They said, ‘Is it an emergency?’ He said, ‘I don’t know,’ so they said, ‘Go sit down.’ They said, ‘Everything’s normal,’” Rachel said.

When crew members finally looked out the window, they ran to the cockpit and the the engines were shut off. Fire engines came rushing over to the plane.

"How not one crew member saw this is beyond me. Thank God we were looking out the window at take off," Rachel tweeted.
