A SkyWest Airlines spokesperson confirmed the "unruly customer" had been restrained, and the flight was able to land safely at Boise Airport. They are now conducting medical and physical evaluations before sending her case to the local prosecutor to determine potential charges, a spokesperson from the Boise Police Department told CBS.
'She wasn't acting right, or normal, from the very beginning [of the flight],' he told the Idaho Statesman.
A woman was taken into custody following an attempt to open an aircraft door during a flight from San Francisco to Boise, Idaho, authorities said.
Afterwards, the woman was apprehended by police, and is now being evaluated by mental health workers. The California resident said the woman was seated with a companion in first class, and she appeared to be apprehensive when the flight departed. He added: "The flight staff were real calm".
Passengers subdued the woman, who has not yet been identified, and held her down before she managed to cause disaster, reported local news.
No one on board the plane was hurt. "The unruly customer was held for questioning by law enforcement".
And moments later another passenger carefully restrains her on the plane carpet to try and stop her moving. He said the woman had been muttering phrases prior to the incident including: "God has all the data".
