Air passenger declares he's God, storms cockpit to 'end terrorism'; flight grounded


Air passenger declares he's God, storms cockpit to 'end terrorism'; flight grounded: reports

By Danielle Wallace | Fox News

A passenger on a flight headed to New York City from Puerto Rico Wednesday tried to enter the cockpit while shouting he was God in an episode that forced the pilot to ground the plane, reports said.

“I am God! Tomorrow San Juan is going to disappear!,” the suspect, later identified as Carlos Ramírez, 30, allegedly shouted as he stormed down the plane’s aisle toward the cockpit. It happened shortly after Delta Flight 579 took off from Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport.

“I came to save the world, and I’m going to end terrorism,” Ramírez also allegedly yelled before flight attendants and some passengers were able to overpower him.

“When he got to the middle of the plane the flight attendants tried to stop him,” Moraima Garcia Rohena, a passenger on the plane, told the New York Post of the incident. Three flight attendants told Ramírez to sit back down but he insisted “he was God and he was preventing a catastrophe on the plane,” she said.
