United Airlines flight diverted to free passenger stuck in toilet
A United Airlines flight was diverted in mid-air after a passenger became trapped in a toilet. The "Lavatory door became inoperative" during the flight, a United Airlines spokesperson told the BBC. The passenger - a woman - was freed after landing. A video of a mechanic attempting to open the toilet door has been shared by a passenger on Twitter. A passenger on the flight, Jennifer Gettman, told KPIX-TV that the woman "Seemed fine" when she emerged from the toilet. Passengers said the woman was stuck in the toilet for about an hour.
