The Idaho authorities recently took the first-class passenger into custody after the woman tried to pry open the plan’s emergency door mid-flight. The unidentified passenger was subdued by the flight crew and was later taken to a hospital for a psychiatric evaluation by Idaho Department of Health and Welfare agents.
Passenger Kept Repeating Nonsensical Phrases Before Opening Emergency Door
The event occurred on Monday, during the SkyWest flight 5449 from San Francisco to Boise. According to several eyewitnesses, a passenger seated at the back of the plane started acting in a peculiar manner soon after the plane took off.
One of the passengers told the authorities that the woman kept repeating nonsensical phrases referring to God who holds all the data. At one point, the woman seemed terrified at the thought that she does not hold sufficient data compared to the divinity.
Perhaps one of the most peculiar things uttered by the passenger was that the plane landed sooner than expected in Boise although was far from reaching the destination. At one point, feared seemed to have encompassed the woman, who got up from her seat while screaming that she wanted to die and kept begging someone to get her off the plane.
Reportedly, the woman rushed down the corridor and made her way to the plane’s emergency door which she tried to pry it open while repeating chanting ‘I am God!’. The woman was later restrained by the flight crew.
Scott T. Smith, one of the passengers who witnessed the woman’s odd behavior, declared that he and the rest of passengers kept calm during the incident, as everyone knows that you need to have superhuman strength in order to open the emergency door after the plane has been pressurized.
