Passenger tries to open Alaska Airlines door during flight



An Alaska Airlines flight on its way to Seattle made an emergency landing Monday in Minneapolis after a passenger tried to open a rear-door midflight.

The Boeing 737 was on its way from JFK Airport in New York.

KIRO 7 News reached out to Alaska Airlines about the incident. 

"We did receive reports that this passenger attempted to access a door at the rear of the aircraft. The passenger was unsuccessful as it is physically impossible to open an aircraft door while the aircraft is pressurized and inflight," spokesperson Halley Knigge said.

The flight resumed shortly after police escorted the disruptive passenger off the jet.

Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Police told KIRO 7 News that officers questioned him and determined he presented a danger to himself.

The passenger was taken to Fairview Southdale Hospital.

An airport spokeswoman says that it is possible this is a possible medical situation so it is not releasing his name at this time.
