We've all been there. You're on a long flight and an infant begins to cry as its parent tries everything short of drugs to quiet their baby. But what if it didn't go that way, what if there was some bizarro world where infant cries ballooned into an all out mid-air brawl? It happened people, on an Air China flight.

According to the Daily Mail, three women got into fisticuffs on a while flying from Chongqing to Hong Kong after one mother's baby began crying. Two women in the row in front of her asked her to shut that kid up (I'm guessing) and then reclined their seats.

Then the mother started yelling at the women.

Then she hit the women.

Then the women began hitting the mother.

Meanwhile, the baby is still crying.

Then the stewardesses had to put down their drink trays and stop an all out war from enveloping their entire flight.

'They were fighting, the baby was now screaming and other passengers were shouting. It was like some bizarre film.'

Still, the flight arrived in Hong Kong on time, even a bit early, where police were waiting to chat with passengers about the madness they'd just endured.
