WATCH VIDEO: MAN climbs onto wing of plane in Las Vegas seconds before it takes off
A man who leaped onto the wing of an Alaska Airlines jet on Saturday, December 12 was arrested at Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport after he tumbled to the ground. Astonished passengers watched from the plane, which was preparing for take-off, as the man sprinted across the tarmac, kicked off his shoes and scrambled up the winglet.
“Law enforcement was dispatched and able to apprehend the individual,” the airline said. “Our guests and employees are safe and we are working with law enforcement. The plane returned to the gate for a full inspection.”
NBC affiliate KSNV in Las Vegas reported that the man, whom police suspect may suffer from mental health difficulties, appears to have jumped over the airport fence before making his way onto the runway.
