Woman on Flight Throws Prosthetic Leg At Cabin Crew

A plane had to be diverted to Gatwick Airport Wednesday night after a woman allegedly had a fit on the plane and threw her prosthetic leg at cabin crew, according to The Herald.

A Sussex police spokesman said the problems started when the woman, 48, began “swearing blue murder” and throwing food at staff on the Thomson Airlines flight 297.

The captain was so shocked by her behavior that he diverted the plane, which was flying from Enfidha in Tunisia and destined for Edinburgh, to Gatwick.

The unemployed woman was arrested at the North Terminal at 10:22pm.

She was taken to Crawley police station where she was quizzed by officers on suspicion of using threatening behavior, the paper writes.
