If this happened on a U.S. airplane he would have been shot. Good thing Canadians are more reasonable in dealing with these matters.

In most airplanes, the last row has a bottle of oxigen behind it. I would have taken that one and either made him breath some oxigen to calm him down or simply hit him on the head with it.

Either way I probably woud have shot him has he requested if I was the air marshal.

Well, a few points here.

The guy is definitely Indian, or at least from the Indian subcontinent.

He was hysterical and probably pretty scared for his life. It would be good to have some background as to what happened to cause the freak out.

The passengers around him were apparently not threatened by him at all. You can see that the people on his sides are reasoning with him and the people on the row in front are totally ignoring him. You can even see the waitress serving food.

That is not to say that I am in any way condoning his behaviour. On a plane, especially nowadays, you just do not make a scene.

Even if it was a panic attack, they should`ve just duct taped his mouth shut. :-D

One of the special needs teachers at school did that to one of the girls because she randomly screams a lot. It was horrible.

No, us Canadians wouldn`t shoot him, we would taser him to death because he`s stressed out and has a funny accent.RCMP tasering Polish man

Seriously, to all the Canadians leaving comments about (police) brutality in the states: get off of your high horse and realize that we`re really no better.

If the call center where he works hears the language he was using he could be in real trouble. Only kidding,poor guy. Maybe a member of the flight crew could have found a way to slip him a sedative though. Does anyone remeber hearing about that autistic guy who took a bullet to the head when he freaked out on a plane a few years ago?

Agh. Thank you siraulo. United does, indeed suck. They managed to lose my baggage on the way TO my destination and FROM my destination. Unbelievable. On the other hand, their planes are better than NorthWest. Air Canada`s "entertainment" is basically crap, but they`re ok as an airline. I really appreciated the fact that they showed a documentary on Pre-"Liberation" Tibet during our flight from Tokyo to Chicago, with Chinese subtitles. That was pretty rock and roll.

If you find it at all reasonable, fly Korea or Japan Air. They`ll treat you right.

I`m going to be enjoying a 20+ hour journey Monday (on NW) . . . Thanks for the post. Jerks.

FREE TIBET!

(CONT2) The in-duh-viduals restraining him made one cardinal rule of restaining a hysterical detainee mistake. You dont keep him in the general public. You always must take cases like this and seperate them from everyone else so as to keep everyone else calm and content. On a plane its tough to do this but not impossible. The galley is perfect for this, if necessary you ask people to move forward into empty seats if there are any. But you dont keep him in the seats with everyone else while you try your damdest to talk him down. Once you have him alone you then take away his "power of the people" and he now has no audience to feed from. Just his on hysterics and the men that surround him that lack any compassion for his antics. Im not saying that they should have harmed him physically, but its an option that must be weighed for the better good and safety of the rest of the aircraft.

(CONT) so its obvious that this guy did something to catch the notice of someone. Then once confronted and then subsequently restrained, he does the exact opposite of what is needed to keep from being restrained. He instead chooses to act the part of an attention getting whore that he was and scream like a 5 year old child that has just been told that they cant have their favorite power ranger toy. Does one need to be racist to say that this individual be what ever color they were needed to be silenced by what ever means necessary in order to calm the rest of the aircraft? See what is being missed is that this guys actions were visibly putting others on edge as well. When this is done you can potentially end up with more than one person in hysterics. Soon eventually you could end up with an entire airplane full of people worried for thier lives because of this one ass monkeys actions.

In the post 9-11 world there are certain things you just dont do anymore. One is making a scene in or around an aircraft. You start making people nervous on a plane and you will find yourself restrained and or worse. Its just that simple. Should people feel remorse for these people? Think about this, when a person starts sweating and pacing the isles of aircraft, do you feel sorry for them? Now keep this in mind, thats the most common reaction of any person about to commit a crime that isnt completely commited to its execution. Now take for example this person on this aircraft. We dont know exactly what led to his restainment, but one can comeplete assured it wasnt something minor. You only have to look as far as a couple of entries down on the main site to see that people can exchange audible obscenities and not get restrained.

coolcrazyguy: More Speciffically it`s from "Lumberjack song" Which was also translated into German along with a larg part of the Flying circus.

The picture represents Mounties, a Canadian icon, more specifically, Mounties singing to show the humouristic aspect of my post.

People recognising the image from the Lumberjack song would get an added level of understanding and humour from said post.

it could be meninges or about a dozen other things. Most likely a panic attack on an aircraft and thats about it. It`s probably a panic attack for a few reasons: 1) He doesn`t specify anything about his concern, just that he is "going to die" and then at the end I presume he starts swearing his head off in frustration. 2) Something like a brain fever is going to make you go totally loopy and liable to have a really big go at attacking someone and so on. Any sort of mental condition will have a slew of probably more noticeable affects (shivering with shizophrenia and constant subject changing, franticness or dead like state with bipolar and so on). I`m not an expert but im doing psych at uni and that`s my best estimation.

Wonder what freaked him out though. Flying in a confined closed space? Guilty thoughts of terrorism? Mid-life chrisis. Thought of being so high up? Allah?

I saw a CSI episode like this, where a guy suddenly started having a panic attack on a plane just like this, as it turns out there are some people who have a medical condition or something that the membrane containing the brain(called the meninges) becomes inflamed, which can cause fever, headaches, tingling, pain or loss of feeling, or a partial loss of movement, and if this was happening to this guy, then its defiantly not surprising that he was panicking

he`s freaking out? why the hell shouldn`t they restain him?? OK, how would you have handled some guy jumping around screaming about dying, and screaming extreme vulgarities, and worst of all, screaming anti-white racist slurs?

DO NOT FEEL SORRY FOR THIS PIECE OF poo!!! and when the plane lands in europe, LEAVE HIM THERE!!!

Maybe it`s just because I fly a lot, but I have to agree - if he would have been on an American flight, or any of the Star Alliance for that matter, people would have been scared to death. True, he may have been a mental patient or something. Even if the guy wasn`t brown, that`d be pretty scary to be on a flight with someone freaking out like that. And did you look at the plane? It was like 7 seats across. They were obviously on a really, really long flight.

Its weird, he had those zip tie cuffs on that the FBI and some other law enforcement agents use instead of handcuffs now.

Raises the question whether he had them on, or whether he was freaking out and the put them on. Do Canadians have Air Marshalls or an equivalent like in the U.S.?
