Couldn't get out of the toilet: man injured on a flight to Bengaluru while being shocked
On the plane, the man was unable to open the toilet door on his own due to a faulty lock. The incident occurred on January 16, on board a SpiceJet flight from Mumbai to Bengaluru, India.
The man was trapped in the enclosed space for the entire flight, which lasted 1 hour and 45 minutes. The man was rescued only after landing, but being in a state of shock, the 37-year-old man was injured, Metro reports.
It is noted that the man did not want to give his name, but was able to comment on the situation. According to him, he was unable to open the door on his own, but managed to attract the attention of the crew.
Airline employees tried to help the man, but they also failed to open the door. Instead, they left the man a note with a message and recommendations: "Sir, we did our best to open the door, but we were unable to open it. Don't panic, we are landing in a few minutes, so please close the lid of the toilet, sit on it and keep yourself safe. As soon as the main door opens, an engineer will come. Do not panic".
Eventually, after the plane landed, the engineer was able to open the toilet door, but according to the victim, he received "no medical attention" after he was released from the toilet.
"When I came out, I was bruised and my vision was blurred for a while. I received a bottle of water and a flurry of apologies from SpiceJet," the passenger said.
Representatives of the airline said they had apologized to the passenger and noted that the victim would receive a full refund for the ruined flight.
