According to the Philippine Daily Inquirer, when Courtney was forced out of the airport, two security personnel of Goldleaf Security Agency held her arms while a third security personnel held her legs. Three other airline security personnel and two airport police officers escorted Courtney carrying her bag and PAL personnel took a video of the scene.

She was again escorted by security personnel a few minutes later and tried to break free of the personnel's hands. Courtney remained calm as they reached the foot of the stairs and the last few steps to the terminal’s side exit.

A doctor was called in and evaluated Courtney's state of mind. Soon, she started to make a scene. Courtney shouted at them to leave her alone as security personnel were about to escort her out of Terminal 2.

Her strong emotion forced the security personnel again to carry her out of the terminal to avoid alarming other passengers.

Airport's police department stated that Courtney was supposed to board a 3:30 PM flight to Bacolod-Silay International Airport. Instead of boarding her PAL flight, she allegedly loitered around NAIA Terminal 2's pre-departure area.

Airport police investigator said that Courtney was brought by Philippine Airlines' Ambulance heading to the National Centre for Mental Health in Mandaluyong City.
