Flight Diverted After Woman Attempts to Open Door

A statement from the airline read that the captain chose to land at Corpus Christi International Airport after the crew became concerned about the behavior of one of the passengers. Photo courtesy of Cleveland ISD Police Department.

Some questioned why the passenger was allowed on the plane after acting as she did before the flight, but the Dallas Morning News reports that Southwest didn't comment on that aspect of the situation.

He says the woman was pacing back and forth along the aisle and not following instructions from crew before she reached for the door.

She had observed the irrational passenger attempting to open the exit door in mid-flight. "Fearing for her safety and the safety of everyone on the plane, she took action and was able to restrain the passenger".

Cleveland Independent School District Police identified the off-duty officer who detained the woman as Pamela Minchew, who had joined the police force only two weeks earlier. "But the staff handled everything very well".




A statement from Southwest Airlines read:'Following an uneventful landing, local authorities met the aircraft at a gate and removed the disruptive passenger. "She wrote "Help me" and her name" on napkins, the traveller said, adding that he "knew something wasn't right".

After a 5-hour delay in Corpus Christi, it arrived safely in Houston.

Passengers who witnessed the incident were held aside for questioning, she said, while others ate pizza in the airport provided by the airplane pilot.

Videos show the passenger being taken off the plane, walking backward with police officers walking both in front and behind her. "This was a failure", Gillentine said.
