The pilot of a flight between North Carolina and New York got stuck in the bathroom shortly before landing. It was in that moment when one of the passengers started to become nervous, fearing a terrorist plot.
It was a weird situation: “the door locked and the pilot trapped in the toilet.” He began shouting for aid, and a passenger in the front rows, hearing the noise, went to the cabin and began to explain the situation to the co-pilot.
But the co-pilot panicked and, in his conversation with the control tower at New York's La Guardia Airport, warned:
"The pilot has gone! I have someone with a strong foreign accent trying to access the cabin now… needed emergency landing yet!”
When the air traffic controllers decided to allow the plane made an emergency landing, the pilot got out of the bathroom and came back into the cabin.
"No problem, there is no threat," said the pilot to control tower, “it was all a misunderstanding!”
