Moments of terror aboard TUI Airways Boeing en route from Paphos to Manchester. A man, certainly altered by alcohol and / or drugs, first began to pray, then to threaten and, finally, to try to open the emergency door of the plane in full flight.
After raving for several minutes, he tried to open the emergency door of the plane in full flight. It happened on a TUI Airways plane en route from Paphos (Cyprus) to Manchester. The flight had already been delayed for a few hours due to personnel problems, before being forced to divert to Zagreb, Croatia, due to the “annoying passenger”.
As reported in the Manchester Evening News, other people aboard the aircraft said they saw the man take a cocaine-like substance and pray on the floor of the Boeing, before threatening other passengers and cabin crew. Then the madness, when he tried to open the emergency exit: it was the other passengers who blocked him.
After the plane was diverted to Zagreb airport in the early hours of yesterday, August 16, vacationers say they were stranded for hours with no food or drink – or any contact with TUI representatives about when they could return. at home.
Kirsty was on the plane with her husband and two children when chaos broke out. She described the incident as “the scariest experience of my life”. She told the British newspaper that the man pointed to her and her children shouting: “See you in heaven”.
“As he crouched on the floor praying, I screamed for help. The only help I received was from my husband who took matters into his own hands to defend and protect everyone on this flight. “
