Swedish pilot breaks into toilet with axe

Drunk passenger refuses to come out for landing
Passengers flying on a domestic route between Stockholm and Örnsköldsvik were alarmed to see their pilot come out of the cockpit and break down the toilet door with an axe.
A passenger inside, who was reportedly drunk, had locked himself in 10 minutes before the plane was due to land and refused to come out.
Passengers are not allowed to be out of their seats during landing, so the captain took matters into his own hands and broke the door down with an axe before “securing” the man.
The man, reported to be in his 50s, now faces a fine or up to six months behind bars if convicted of crimes against aviation law.
