Passenger 'Tried To Open Plane Door' In Mid-Air

Video Preview

A Southwest Airlines flight from Chicago to Sacramento has been diverted to Nebraska after a passenger reportedly tried to open a door in mid-air., reports Sky News.

The captain of the flight landed on Eppley Airfield in Omaha to "have an unruly passenger removed", the airline said in a statement. Witnesses reported that a passenger had tried to open a door.

"Some gentleman just decided that he wanted us to visit the Lord today and ... open up the back hatch while we were all already up in the air," Monique Lawler told local station KABC-TV. Ms Lawler said that when the man went to the back of the cabin to try to pry open the door, a flight attendant screamed for help.

A doctor told KCRA-TV in Sacramento he and two other passengers tackled the man and restrained him until air marshals led him in handcuffs off the plane. "He was going to do bad things to the plane so it was pretty scary," Scott Porter said.

The flight, which was carrying five crew members and 134 passengers, arrived safely at its destination about two hours behind schedule.
