A man suddenly began biting his fellow passengers on a JetBlue flight from Los Angeles to New York Sunday, forcing the plane to divert and land in Las Vegas.
Witnesses said the man began biting his seatmates, whom he already knew, somewhere over Utah and then began hitting other passengers, according to CBS on Tuesday.
Doctors tried to step in and examine the man but he lashed out and attacked them as well, forcing the pilot to turn around and land in Nevada. Another passenger jumped in and helped subdue the man while flight attendants put restraints on him.
“I grabbed his hands behind his back and held him there while the flight attendants put the restraints on him,” a passenger known only as Tom told CBS. “At that point, he started yelling and tried to come towards the flight attendant, who was behind me, at the time. I really had a hell of a time keeping him in place there.”
The unruly passenger was eventually escorted off the plane and the flight continued to JFK without further interruption, CBS reports.
