A Toronto city councillor was among several passengers on an Air Canada flight from Jamaica who helped restrain an unruly passenger who allegedly tried to open a cabin door.

A passenger became aggressive on a flight from Jamaica to Toronto and attacked crew members. Investigators say the man swung a coffee pot at the crew before saying that it would “only take one guy to take the plane down.”

At that point, investigators say he reached for a cabin door and began yanking on the handle.

Crew members and other passengers, including Coun. Michael Thompson, were able to restrain the man and secured him using zip ties.

 

The flight was then diverted to Orlando, Florida where the FBI launched an investigation.
