A late-night Malaysia Airlines flight was turned back to Melbourne last night following a secrurity incident involving a disruptive passenger who tried to enter the plane's cockpit.
Fox Fm’s Fifi Box, Brendan Fevola and Byron Cooke spoke to 20-year-old Melbourne passenger, Claudia Lipinski, this morning.
“So the flight had just taken off and the cabin was dark cause it was a night time take off," she explained.
“We heard a woman shouting “help me help me help me” and a flight assistant shouting “This man is a danger, someone stop him, stop him!”
She then described passengers restraining the man and getting him in a choke hold.
