United Airline diverts flight after man smears faeces everywhere
United Airlines plane flying from Chicago to Hong Kong was diverted to Anchorage after a passenger vandalized two bathrooms and spread faeces everywhere.
Anchorage Airport Police Lt. Joe Gamache confirms the man spread human faeces in the bathrooms and attempted to flush his shirt before Flight 895 was diverted to Anchorage on Thursday evening.
The Police Lt. said the passenger, whose identity was not disclosed, never tried to interfere with the flight crew and therefore isn’t expected to be arrested.
The man was however, taken to a local hospital for a mental health assessment.
United Airlines spokesman Charlie Hobart says 245 passengers were aboard the flight, which is set to depart Anchorage on Friday.
No injuries were reported.
