Drunk passenger taped to seat on Icelandair

Fellow passengers push him back and tie him down



Icelandair passengers took extreme action when a fellow passenger who became uncontrollable after allegedly drinking too much. He was taped to his seat. Photos showing the 46-year-old Icelandic passenger gagged with his arms and legs taped to the chair soon circulated on the internet.
According to witnesses, the passenger had been drinking throughout the flight from Iceland to JFK. He screamed that the plane was going to crash and tried to strangle the woman seated next to him. So fellow passengers pushed him back and tied him up for the rest of the flight. Police later escorted him off the plane. However, he was not charged.
