Woman restrained after trying to open airplane cabin door during flight

The incident took place onboard United Express Flight 5449, which took off from San Francisco. "I am God. I am God", while other passengers restrained her, in a video provided to CBS News.

According to SkyWest, the "unruly passenger" was questioned by law enforcement after the flight landed, but no arrests have been reported. She was later handed over to the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare for further psychiatric evaluation.

He said: "She wasn't acting right, or normal, from the very beginning".

A first-class passenger who seemed disturbed during a United Express flight from San Francisco to Boise tried to open the emergency door while the plane was still in the air.

The plane landed safely, and no passengers were harmed. The California resident said the woman was seated with a companion in first class, and she appeared to be apprehensive when the flight departed.


A spokesperson for the Boise police says officers will forward the police report to the local prosecutor to decide if charges should be filed. He added: "The flight staff were real calm".

Video footage of the incident records the moments after passengers deterred the unidentified woman from opening the door.

SkyWest officials say the passenger was restrained on the flight, and police met the aircraft at the gate.

Scott T. Smith was sitting behind the woman during the flight. Officials also said the Federal Bureau of Investigation may later review the case. "The unruly customer was held for questioning by law enforcement".
