Here’s a weird one: The co-pilot of an Air Canada flight had a crying, screaming emotional breakdown over the Atlantic.
Yelling, crying and invoking God, the co-pilot of an Air Canada flight from Toronto to London had to be forcibly removed from the cockpit of his jetliner after suffering an emotional collapse as the plane flew over the Atlantic.
Shackled by the wrists and ankles, the shoeless first officer had to be restrained by crew members with the help of a traveller who was a member of the Canadian Forces.
Apparently, he kept yelling, “Leave Britney alone!” (And did he take off his own shoes or did they do it for him?)
“When they tried to put his shoes on later, for example, he swore and threatened people. ... He was ... very, very distressed.”
Looks like he took his own shoes off. Sounds like Isabella sometimes.
“At no time was safety compromised,” Air Canada spokeswoman Isabelle Arthur said.
Well, except for that brief time when he was still at the controls and started his freakout. But after that everything was peachy.
