United Airlines is being sued by a man who claims his drunk seatmate urinated during the flight — and that the carrier made him sit in the soaked seat for the remainder of the trip, according to a lawsuit filed in a New Jersey court Wednesday.

Daniel Card was flying from Los Angeles International Airport to Newark Liberty Airport June 12 when the alleged incident occurred. The intoxicated man was not named in the suit.

“The passenger seated in 24E was heavily intoxicated prior to entering the flight, and had fallen into a drunken stupor sitting next to Card,” the lawsuit claims. “While sitting next to the intoxicated passenger, Card noticed that a powerful odor of alcohol was emanating from the passenger’s breath and body.”

He urinated in his seat before the plane took off.

“As the flight was getting ready to take off, the passenger seated in 24E took out his penis and aimed it at Card and proceeded to urinate all over Card’s leg, while Card was confined to his seat due to an imminent departure of the flight,” the document says. “Upon being soaked in the passenger’s urine, Card further noticed that the odor of the urine also emitted a powerful scent of alcohol.”

Card was unable to wake the passenger and United staff did not help Card until he repeatedly asked to be moved from his seat, but was “forced to endure the remainder of the flight to Newark, New Jersey while remaining in his urine drenched clothing.”

United did not change the plane’s route, which resulted in the risked health and safety of Card and the other passengers on the flight, according to the suit. Card contacted his father, who then contacted authorities.

“Upon information and belief, but for Card and/or his father contacting law enforcement, no one would have intervened to contacted law enforcement,” the lawsuit says.

The passenger in 24E did not remember urinating on his seatmate, he said during an interview with the FBI. He admitted to having four drinks at the airport, which led the lawsuit to claim the passenger was “allowed to be seated on a flight while in an intoxicated state by United personnel” even though it “posed a serious health and safety risk to himself and to others, including Card.”

Card is suing the airline for emotional distress, breach of contract, assault and negligence.

“We have not yet been served with this suit and due to the pending litigation involved in this matter, we’re unable to provide further comment,” United Airlines said in a statement to Fox News Tuesday.
