PBS NewsHour Weekend

Assaulted in the Air #866

Sunday, February 11, 05:00 pm on KPBS

Duration: 0:26:46

Description: During the last few years, there have been dozens of accounts of sexual assaults on airplanes. While the number of F.B.I investigations is increasing, there is no database tracking the assaults, and airlines are not required to report them to the federal government. And cabin crew report that training on how to handle harassment and assault is inadequate - even though they are often the targets themselves. NewsHour Weekend's Megan Thompson has the story.
