Passenger Grounds Frontier Flight After Fighting Attendant and Opening Emergency Door

ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) — Monday a Frontier flight bound for St. Louis was suspended after officials said a passenger opened the plane’s cabin door.

According to representatives, the passenger said he felt ill before getting agitated. As the pilot returned to the gate, the passenger became physically violent with a flight attendant and opened the cabin door.

The emergency slide was automatically deployed and the passenger tried to jump out of the plane.

Kathleen Ingham and Toni Crosby were on the flight, originally scheduled to fly from Cancun to St. Louis, and filmed the chaos from their seats.

“I mean I was thinking we went through 9/11, we’re Americans, you start kicking the cockpit door and we think you might have a weapon on board,” said Ingham.
