Horrifying video taken at a US airport shows a man leaping over a balcony as shocked passengers scream in terror.

The man had reportedly been involved in a row before he plummeted over a rail at Atlanta Airport.

A witness posted the clip on Twitter, alongside the words: "What the f*** did I just witness?"

Incredibly some at the airport suggested the man survived the fall, with one posting: "After he fell he was quiet for a minute then started screaming again but couldn’t move. A lot of kids watching."

He appeared to run up to the rail before lifting himself up and launching himself over the side.

A large group were seen watching the row.

Moments earlier the man, who had long dark hair and was wearing a t-shirt and jeans, was seen arguing with two men who appear to work at the airport.

One witness posted that the man had "killed himself".

He is understood to have suffered 'significant' injuries, and has been taken to hospital.

Police told the network that the man appeared to be intoxicated, and had been threatening other passengers.
