He tried to open the plane door and then also attacked a flight attendant, injuring her neck with a broken metal spoon. Moments of terror aboard Flight 2609 between Los Angeles and Boston, which was operated by United Airlines’ Boeing 757.
According to witnesses from passengers, flight attendants, and flight attendants, Francisco Severo Torres, 33, of Massachusetts, managed to “disarm” at least one of the safety systems on one of the Buccaneer’s emergency doors before the crew and passengers themselves could block it.
It happened 45 minutes after landing, when the plane had already begun the final stage of the flight. The tailgate handle has been moved about a quarter in the open direction.
The passenger was not caught in the act, but there was no doubt for the stewardess and passengers that it was he who had committed this extremely dangerous act. When the crew pressured the passenger, he threw himself at the flight attendant, striking her in the neck.
The captain completed the flight, once the handle had been returned to its intended position and once it had been assured that the passenger could no longer cause harm. It was later discovered that Torres had questioned another passenger about the plane’s safety handles during the flight attendant’s demonstration. He risks a few years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
