Passengers on board a SkyWest Airlines flight were forced to restrain a woman after she attempted to open the cabin door mid-flight, while repeatedly yelling “I am God”.
Passengers on SkyWest flight OO5449 from San Francisco to Boise were forced to wrestle a woman to the ground after she attempted to open a cabin door mid-flight.
Cellphone footage shows the woman repeatedly shouting ‘I am God’ as she is flung to the ground and tied up.
Danny Taurus, a passenger on the flight, told NBC: “She got up from her seat ran towards the cabin door and tried opening it mid-flight.
“It was definitely scary, everyone was very confused. The pilot came on the loudspeaker and told us at all costs to stop her from opening the door.”
The pilot decided against making an emergency landing because the plane was only 100 miles from Boise Airport.
SkyWest Airlines released a statement saying: “SkyWest flight 5449, operating as United Express from San Francisco to Boise, landed safely in Boise after reports of a customer attempting to open the aircraft door. The customer was restrained, and law enforcement officials met the flight at the gate, where all passengers safely deplaned. The unruly customer was held for questioning by law enforcement.”
In addition to yelling “I am God”, the woman reportedly shouted other phrases, including: “God has all the data;” “I don’t have any data;” and “We landed in Boise 15 minutes ago.”
