Airbnb host seen on camera pushing woman down flight of stairs
AMSTERDAM – Airbnb executives said they're looking into video that shows a woman falling down stairs following an altercation with her "host."
The company said it was ready to help after it was made aware on Twitter of footage described as showing a person being pushed down a flight of stairs by an Airbnb host in Amsterdam.
The footage, captured in the Netherlands on July 8, shows an altercation between a man and a woman in a door frame near the top of a flight of stairs.
The man is pushing the woman, who is trying to resist.
The woman then falls down the stairs, suffering what looks to be a hard landing.
The man rushes down after her and calls for someone off-screen to get an ambulance.
Other people are heard wailing and crying.
Local media reports say a 47-year-old man was arrested after the event, according to a police spokesperson.
The extent of the injuries to the woman who fell down the stairs is not known through official channels. However, social media posts that accompanied the video clip indicate she did not suffer life-threatening injuries.
