Sunday evening’s United Airlines flight UA2304 from Los Angeles to Newark saw a significant police response on the tarmac, with luggage inspected and passengers eventually bused to the terminal, after a customer with a medical emergency apparently said there was a bomb on board while hallucinating.
According to a United Airlines spokesperson, “During the medical emergency onboard, the passenger made a remark which created a potential security concern.” The plane landed about 4:30 p.m. on Sunday. Officers boarded the aircraft. Police dogs sniffed luggage. It all went something like this:
Police believe the woman “was high on marijuana chewables and Adderall.” She was ultimately hospitalized.
The Lakewood Scoop has video and audio from the incident.
If everyone was going to treat the hallucination as real, why couldn’t the passenger have had a vision of good service – or better yet that 2020 was over?
