Nude Woman Thrown Off Plane In Alaska

Tue Apr 10, 2007 11:17 pm

Nude Woman Thrown Off Plane in Alaska

On April 6, a Continental flight bound from Newark to Japan, made an unscheduled stop in Anchorage, Alaska to have a nude woman removed.

A woman seated in the BusinessFirst cabin began to take her clothes off because she had urinated in her seat and her clothes were drenched in urine. The woman was lying down in the aisle completely nude. She also lost her teeth, which were later found one row behind her urinated seat. Her upper set was found lodged between seat cushions.

The cockpit crew had been in communication with MedLink and was trying to determine if she was on any medication, intoxicated or just plain nuts. When the nude woman approached the cockpit, a decision was made to land the plane to have her removed.

The cabin crew tried to cover up the nude woman without any teeth with blankets. One of the flight attendants gave her pajamas so the woman wouldn’t have to wear her soiled clothes.when she went to jail…or go wrapped in blankets (which are company property).

None of the crew members had an extra set of false teeth packed, so the woman had to do without it.

The plane landed in Anchorage, the flipped out woman (now wearing pajamas) was removed, and the flight continued to Narita..

The passengers were very pissed off also.

Yikes, I thought this would be a little more fun than that, like when a French woman took off all her clothes at EVV when they had a problem finding what the metal detector was hitting on. She got mad and stripped yelling at the poor guy. BTW she was pretty hot looking.

This woman was probably much older - judging by the fact that she had false teeth and was incontinent... Maybe a really bad case of Sundowning? I've seen older people display this kind of behavior in the hospital - usually a combination of dimentia with being in an unfamiliar place.

I hope there was a correctable reason for her doing this - hopefully she was just drunk. If she is suffering from an illness - old age is nothing to laugh about especially for those not lucky enough to get there with some dignity, let alone keep it. Hopefully the passengers being pissed is an indication that the situation was not entirely beyond her control - I'd hate to think they'd get pissed if someone were having a heart attack or something.

I have to agree.
It doesn't sound like this lady was drunk. This does sound like she was having some sort of mental breakdown.
As far as other passengers being 'pissed', they can be some cry babies at times. Some act as if now one else is as important as themselves, even when someone's health is at risk.

As sad as it is, people get really pissed off when there is a medical and a diversion creates havoc to their day. If they get too vocal (because it interferes in their plans later on (read: it's all about me, who cares about the person in dire need)), I tend to get vocal back.

I do feel sorry for d lady, considering she was aged.

Airliners on long destinations must do the needful to deal with situations like this. Without having to make the passenger leave the plane.

Absolutely true.

In fact, one of the Airport Police Officers that handled the issue is a friend of mine.  rotfl 

As soon as the radio request came in for assistance ("Distraught Naked Female on Flight XYZ") my friend, who had just gotten off shift . . . called back on his radio . . . "I'm 10-19, I'm 10-19".  rotfl

If I were a passenger, I'd be pissed off too, not at the passenger (who appears not to have been able to help it) but at the airline for making an unscheduled stop without, as far as can be discerned from the information above, a good reason. There appears not to have been either a life-threatening medical situation or a life-threatening security situation. Neither dementia nor incontinence are justifiable reasons for an unscheduled stop.

Opinion.

Better to have stopped in ANC and let this woman get help than get out over the North Pacific and find something besides a slight aging, dementia and urinary malfunction.

Well, the passenger "approached" the cockpit, according to the original poster. That alone, in this day and age, may have been enough to prompt the diversion for security reasons. As ANCFlyer suggests, you never know what something like that may turn into.

By that logic, one should divert everytime someone coughs or gets up to use the lavatory near the cockpit. There may have been a justifiable reason to divert but, if there was, it hasn't been mentioned yet in the thread. Dementia and incontinence don't even come close.

If the captain thought that a geriatric naked woman was about to highjack the flight, then a diversion to offload the captain would have been justified.

When I read the thread headline I guessed that there would be no pictures. When I read about the false teeth I was relieved there wasn't!

As for the bladder control side, I would bet that the old gal had a drink or two and it impacted her far more than it would have at sea level. After having both surgery and radiation for prostate cancer I have a policy of NEVER drinking alcohol on a flight and hold it to one glass of wine when not flying.

It is obvious you have not dealt with dementia personally. I have. My mother (God bless her) is in the late stages of dementia related to Alzheimer's.

People with dementia are often extremely violent. My mother may look like a frail senior citizen but she is capable of doing real bodily harm to others. I have the bruises to prove it. If she had access to something sharp or heavy she could do real damage. Not to mention the fact that she could do harm to herself as well.

Absolutely correct to have this individual taken off a plane.

I don't know about you, but if someone sitting near me pissed through her clothes, took them off, and started wandering around the plane naked, I'd want her removed. Even if she was young and had a hot body.  biggrin

The airline couldn't very well deny passage (especially if she's flying BusinessFirst) to someone who was clearly in need of special attention, although those who let the lady travel while likely knowing such incident might happen should've had her accompanied. They were probably anxious that the airline would require a companion if apprised of the situation.

WOW -

quick questions:

1) how much would it cost to divert a 777 in this case?
2) does the woman get charged by the airline or is this something they would leave alone for pure publicity sake - "poor old lady (not too poor, she was in C/J) loses bladder function and her mind?"

Never a dull moment at FL350 eh?

Yet another story of overreaction by an overzealous crew. The woman was obviously senile... helping her rather than dumping her would have been the best thing to do. I expected much much more from Continental, the last real airline in the U.S.

Certainly, this is one of the reasons why I don't support pilots having guns... they'd be driven by panic rather than common sense in using them.

Diverting was the right choice. If I was a passenger on that flight I would not want to continue another 6 hours in the air with someone who is clearly mentally unstable and in the midst of a manic moment. While it may not be an obvious medical emergency like a stroke or a heart attack, it is pretty clear in my mind that this woman needed immediate attention. I hope she is doing better and enjoying some R&R in Anchorage.

By that logic, one should divert everytime someone coughs or gets up to use the lavatory near the cockpit.

By no means am I suggesting this. IN THIS CASE, we had a flight using a Continental B772ER. http://flightaware.com/live/flight/C...9/history/20070406/1527Z/KEWR/PANC

On this type, THERE IS NO LAVATORY near the flightdeck. http://www.continental.com/web/en-US.../travel/inflight/aircraft/777.aspx

So there really wasn't any reason for this, or any other passenger to "approach" the flightdeck, mid-flight. And nobody said anything about coughing.

Clearly there was a situation on this flight; it was escalated when the passenger approached the door. The situation was dealt with. Period.

I'm sure there is a lav up front, but for the crew only.
Yay Pudding!

CO did the right thing in this situation. Her behavior was totally unacceptable on an aircraft. From her behavior to the point of the decision to divert, it was clear that she as well as the others on the flight could be at risk. Let us hope that this woman gets the appropriate medical help and psychological counseling, then to home in a secure way. Imanage the shame she and her family/friends have had with this incident.
