Teen boy duct-taped after trying to kick out plane’s window

 

Flight attendants have once again resorted to duct tape to restrain an unruly passenger — this time tying down a 13-year-old boy on an American Airlines flight as another family member punched a window, according to the airline.

The teen threw a tantrum and fought with his mother aboard an American Airlines flight from Maui to Los Angeles on Tuesday, CBS Los Angeles reported.

The boy acted up on the Airbus A321 about an hour into the flight, which took off at 12:44 p.m., according to the outlet and flight-tracking sites.

Video posted by the station shows masked passengers helping the crew restrain the wild adolescent. One flight attendant is seen scurrying up the aisle with a roll of gray duct tape.

The flight diverted to Honolulu, where the boy was taken into custody, according to CBS LA. No one was reported injured.

Duct tape also was used in two other recent airline incidents, including passenger Maxwell Berry, 22, being tied to the back of a seat on a Frontier flight from Philadelphia to Miami on Aug. 3.
