    "Once Upon a Time" actress Emilie de Ravin took to Twitter Thursday after an apparent run-in with an American Airlines employee as she attempted to board a flight at Los Angeles International Airport with her breast pump.

    "I was grabbed forcefully, my carry-on bag ripped out of my hand by a AA employee," the former "Lost" actress wrote to her online followers, as she urged American Airlines to fire the employee.

    De Ravin indicated the incident may have been instigated by her attempting to take her breast pump onto the flight as part of her carry-on baggage. The actress gave birth to her first child with boyfriend, Eric Bilitch, in March and announced her engagement on her Instagram in August.

    American Airlines released the following statement to E! News: "American Airlines is looking into the situation and apologizes to the customer for the inconvenience. Passengers are allowed to have two carry-on items. A breast pump is considered a medical device and should've been allowed on the plane, which eventually it was."
