A man on board a Ryanair flight was restrained after he attempted to hit a stewardess with a fire extinguisher and open one of the aircraft's doors as he was screaming threats to "kill every single one," of the passengers and crew, the British tabloid reported on Saturday.
A video showing the shocking moment has emerged online. As can be heard in the footage, the troublesome passenger also made threats to burn flyers' houses down.
Addressing the incident, Ryanair issued a statement stressing that the passenger was banned from their flight.
“The crew of this flight from Manchester to Gran Canaria (4 May) requested police assistance upon landing after a passenger had a psychotic episode. The passenger became abusive towards and struck members of the cabin crew and had to be restrained by other passengers. This is now a matter for local police,” the company stated.
