One passenger on the flight, Ali Burns, tweeted: “Someone tried to hijack our plane from LAX to ATL. … The man announced that we had to be near our oxygen masks and proceeded to try to open the door. Then they called all the “strong men” to the front of the plane to stop it.
“We ended up landing in OKC as it was the closest airport to us.”
Burns later added: “Update: I was trying to open the door to the outside, not the cockpit.”
A video posted by a passenger, Steve Denton, shows the flight crew and passengers struggling with Duncan and holding him down.
Darren Genet, one of the passengers who attended, told ABC News that there was a “fight” and that he and other passengers “swooped in” to help contain Duncan. “We held him and he was screaming and crying,” Genet told the news network. “And then one of the gentlemen on the flight was a Marine, and he came and they got the restraints, and we kind of held him down until we put the restraints on.”
“By then he was already apologizing.” An off-duty pilot also helped, according to ABC News.
Genet added: “He was pretty scary. We were really lucky to have been able to take this guy down. ”
Duncan remains being held in the Oklahoma County Jail, but Oklahoma court records show no charges brought against him.
