For 26-year-old Perth woman Laura Bushney, flying with Malaysia Airlines just weeks after the crash of MH17 and just months after the disappearance of MH370 was an experience filled with anxiety.
What she never expected was for the terror she feared to actually happen to her.
On 4 August, Laura Bushney was flying to Paris to meet her boyfriend. She had chosen Malaysia Airlines because it was discounted but still she was scared, worried by recent events.
Three hours into the flight, with the plane in darkness, it hit turbulence. For an anxious flier it was the last thing she needed.
The Chief Steward, a man named Mohd Rosli Bin Ab Karim, sat down beside Laura in the aisle seat.
She said he grabbed her hand and told her to lie down and sleep. Laura said she felt so uncomfortable with his attention that she asked him to get her a drink, but when he returned he placed her feet on his lap and began massaging her legs.
A clearly deeply affected Laura told Sunday Night she was scared and petrified, and was so caught in the moment that she never told him to stop.
But as a safety measure, Laura turned on the video of her mobile phone in the darkness of the cabin and began recording the incident.
