Article content

Passengers on a flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta were terrorized when a man tried to open one of the doors on the jet.

According to The Independent, witnesses said the crew asked for “strong men” to assist in subduing the passenger on the Delta flight.

One took to Twitter and said the freaked-out flier accessed the PA system in the front galley and announced he was taking over and that his fellow passengers should take their seats and put on their oxygen masks.

And then he tried to open the cabin door.

Witnesses said he was wearing an orange life jacket.

That’s when the “strong able-bodied men” the crew called for raced to the front of the plane to subdue the disturbed man.

In video posted online, passengers and crew members can be seen restraining the man.

A spokesperson for Delta said: “Thanks to the crew and passengers of Delta Flight 1730 who assisted in detaining an unruly passenger as the flight diverted to Oklahoma City (OKC).

“The aircraft landed without incident and the passenger was removed by law enforcement. We apologize to our customers for the delay and any additional inconvenience this caused.”

His name has not been released and there have been few other details.
