(CNN)A student used a Facebook Live Stream to prevent the deportation of an Afghan asylum seeker on board an Istanbul-bound plane at Gothenburg airport in Sweden.
Elin Ersson refused to sit down until the man was taken off the plane along with her as the other passengers applauded.
In her video, Ersson, who on Facebook says she is a student at Gothenburg University, explained to stewards and passengers why she was taking a stand.
“There is a man who is going to get deported to Afghanistan, where he will most likely get killed,” she said in the video. “I’m not going to sit down until this person is off the plane.”
