Unruly medical emergency
« on: May 26, 2010, 12:08:11 AM »

A Delta Airlines Boeing 757-200, flight DL-424 from San Juan (Puerto Rico) to Atlanta,GA (USA), had just reached cruise altitude at FL400 when a male passenger suffered an anxiety attack and assaulted a flight attendant. The captain decided to return to San Juan, the airplane landed safely back to San Juan 45 minutes after departure, the man was taken into custody by police.

The airplane reached Atlanta with a delay of 2:40 hours.

Police said, the man suffered from bipolar disorder and had forgotten to take his medicine before the flight. No further details were released.

I tried to locate the audio, unsuccessfully. If one of you catches the audio, post it here, please.
