A Vancouver-bound Lufthansa flight was forced to divert from Munich to Hamburg after a passenger’s erratic behavior threatened safety. Lufthansa officials confirmed that flight LH476 was diverted to Hamburg where the passenger was removed.
Hamburg police confirmed that a rescue crew, including a doctor, met the man and diagnosed him with a mental disorder. He was taken to a local psychiatric facility. There is no active police investigation into the incident.
“It was reported that there was a man in the back of the plane screaming and yelling and apparently tried to open the back door of the aircraft at 38,000 feet,” said passenger Dan Iosch of Vancouver, who at the time was seated in first class. He started to act up right at the start of the flight but no one thought he’d be a flight risk, he surprised everyone. – CINEWS
