Flight surprise! Screaming naked man runs down aisle

May 17, 2018 Headline News No Comments Email Email

It was a weird scene: the flight was descending so passengers were buckling their seatbelts – when a sudden commotion erupted as a naked man sprinted down the aisle, shouting, screaming and waving his arms about – with two other passengers in hot pursuit.

The bizarre incident occurred aboard Alaska Airlines flight 107 to Anchorage. Passengers finally tackled the naked man and locked him in a bathroom.

Alaska senator Johnny Ellis, who was aboard the flight, tweeted about the event. Not surprisingly, his tweet started with the word “WOW”.

In a statement carried by the Washington Post, Alaska Airlines said the aircraft landed “without incident”. Police boarded the plane at the gate to detain the naked man who was then taken away to a hospital.

The naked man was in his early 20s, passengers said. There was some speculation that one of the man’s pursuers may have been an air marshal and the other possibly the man’s father.

Initial passenger alarm gave way to relief as the man was restrained – and then many passengers laughed, according to another passenger aboard.
