This is terrifying. A ‘disturbed and unruly’ woman on board a flight from London to Boston was met by police when the aircraft landed, after she had tried to open the plane’s door midway through the trip. Oh, and she was said to be very intoxicated. Here’s what we know.
Massachusetts police were on hand to meet a plane landing in Boston on Nov. 17, after a drunk woman on board had reportedly tried to open the door to the aircraft– midway through the flight from London. The unidentified woman’s antics triggered a level 2 alert, meaning there was some violence involved. Yikes.
British Airways flight 213 was traveling from London’s Heathrow airport to Logan International Airport in Massachusetts when a woman on board, said to be in her 30s, tried to force open the plane’s door.
“A passenger on British Airways Flight 213, a 777 en route from Heathrow to Boston, tried to open an exit door and was restrained,” a Federal Aviation Administraion spokesperson told Buzzfeed. The spokesperson added that the cockpit was secure and the flight continued to Boston.
Following the incident, British Airways released a statement confirming the events. “Our customers and crew deserve to have a safe and enjoyable flight and we do not tolerate abusive behavior,” an airline spokesperson said. “Our crew requested that police meet the flight in Boston due to an unruly customer on board.”
Once apprehended, Massachusetts police wrote on Twitter that the woman, who was being interviewed by authorities, had “No known nexus to terrorism at this time.” The incident, of course, comes fresh on the heels of a deadly terrorist attack in Paris on Nov. 13, which left 129 people dead. Thus, tensions are certainly high around the world.
