Plane Makes Emergency Landing After a Report of ‘Someone’s Ear Being Bit Off’!!
A United Airlines flight headed from Newark, New Jersey to Miami was forced to make an unexpected stop in South Carolina last week after police say a man bit another passenger!!
Police say the suspect, 45-year-old John Yurkovich Jr., seemed “agitated” after a trip to the bathroom. After asking for a glass of water, he began to “scream and thrash around.”
According to the police report, that’s when Yurkovich punched a passenger sitting next to him several times. While other people tried to restrain him, the same passenger was also allegedly bit on the ear (which later required seven stitches). A doctor on board tried to subdue Yurkovich with a shot of Benadryl until the flight could land.
Let us know! Have you been on a flight that had to be diverted because of a disruptive passenger? What is your worst flight experience?
