Passengers Restrain Man with Duct Tape After He Tries Opening Plane Door Mid-Flight

5 months ago

American Airlines confirmed that passengers had to hold down and duct tape a man’s legs after he tried to open an emergency exit door mid-flight on Tuesday.

The disturbance happened on Flight 1219, which was heading from Albuquerque, New Mexico to Chicago O'Hare Airport.

Shortly after takeoff, the disruptive passenger prompted the pilot to turn the plane around back to Albuquerque.

In a video taken by a fellow passenger, the man can be seen attempting to open the emergency exit door as multiple other passengers surround him and try to restrain him.

A child cries audibly in the background while another flier asks what is going on.
