A flight crew on a Delta plane had to subdue “God” before he caused more trouble.
During a flight on Wednesday from Puerto Rico to New York, 30-year-old Carlos Ramirez began screaming “I am God!” and that he would save the world. Passengers and members of the flight crew restrained the man while the pilots flew back to San Juan.
Thankfully, everyone’s safe, and the plane eventually arrived at its intended destination just a couple of hours later. (Or, as Delta calls it, early.)
The suspect “was aggressive and shouted ‘I am God! San Juan is going to disappear tomorrow. I came to save the world and I am going to end terrorism,’ and he also tried to enter the main cabin,” the [FBI] statement said.
The cockpit door remained closed and secured throughout the incident, Delta said.
“Delta applauds the quick action and professionalism of the crew of Delta flight 579,” the airline said. “The flight attendant crew swiftly restrained the individual with help from some customers.”
Has God ever been mentioned in a story about a flight without it revolving around some sort of awful incident…?
