Plane passenger's stomach-churning injury goes viral
PASSENGERS have been caught on camera engaging in some pretty disgusting in-flight behaviour over the years.
We've seen photos of passengers giving themselves in-flight pedicures - with one passenger literally peeling dead skin from their feet - and being caught with hands down their pants. Passengers have been caught drying their wet clothes in the cabin, while others have completely disrobed mid-air.
Almost all of these photos inevitably pop up on the Instagram account Passenger Shaming, a rogue's gallery of the world's worst-behaved air travellers.
The page is filled with pictures that are a little difficult to look at - but the latest addition could be the most disturbing yet.
The photo shows a male passenger merely sitting and watching the in-flight entertainment screen with a bandage covering some kind of wound on his leg.
The problem is, the wound is seeping, and the yellowish substance is dripping down his leg and forming a puddle around his foot on the floor.

It is unclear what airline the man was flying with, or indeed what on earth was going on with his leg.
Inevitably, Instagram users reacted in the extreme, with many declaring the snap to be the worst post on Passenger Shaming yet.
"Nope. No. Not EVER. NO," someone wrote.
"I can't with this … this is the worst one yet," someone said, while another added: "That is one of the grossest things I have ever seen."
Even a professional claimed they couldn't deal with the sight. "I'm a doctor but I did barf in my mouth a little upon seeing this!!! Dear Lord let it be a Halloween prank or something."
Another said the man's indifference to his condition was the reason she always packed cleaning wipes in her carry-on bag.
"People look at me like I'm a complete weirdo (and maybe I am) for bringing wipes on the plane and wiping down anything and everything that I might touch or might touch me," she said.
"I'm a nurse and I've seen first hand how disgusting people can be."
Someone else simply said: "That's some serious unfit-to-fly sh*t right there."
Recently, social media erupted in disgust when a couple was photographed in the first-class cabin playing footsie with their bare feet.
