Maniac drops dead while trying to strangle woman on flight

May 27, 2019 Headline News No Comments Email Email

Police are investigating a bizarre and disturbing in-flight incident in which an unnamed 32-year-old man suddenly died after allegedly attempting to throttle a fellow passenger.

The assailant reportedly suffered cardiac arrest during the incident, having threatened passengers on the flight by yelling: “If you want to live, put up your hands. We are going to die – the pilots are asleep!”

The flight, an Airbus A320 operated by the Russian airline Red Wings, was headed from Moscow to Simferopol, a popular Black Sea resort area in Crimea. Just over half an hour into the flight, the pilot turned back to Moscow for an emergency landing because a violent ruckus had broken out aboard, Britain’s Daily Mirror reported.https://join.travelmanagers.com.au/benefits/earn-more/

Red Wings, based in Moscow Domodedovo Airport, provides both scheduled passenger and cargo charter services.

Reports say the man was screaming abuse, fighting men trying to restrain him and using a mobile phone to repeatedly clobber a male passenger over the head. It was not clear why he attacked the woman. Crew rescued her from the crazed would-be strangler and lashed the man to a seat, a witness said.

According to the Mirror, the attacker suddenly had a heart attack and collapsed, though accounts differ on when that occurred. A doctor on the flight managed to restart the man’s heart but the man was pronounced dead by paramedics shortly after landing.

Unconfirmed reports suggest the attacker may have sustained a head injury during the melee. Footage shot aboard includes audio of a man shouting in Russian “throw him out with a parachute!” and a shocked woman saying “A man just started going mad here. He has been hitting a woman. They have tied him up now.”
