NEWS WestJet passengers help to restrain a man demanding to be let off mid-air

Passengers on a WestJet flight from Toronto to Edmonton had to help to restrain a man on their flight who was demanding to be let off the plane while it was still thousands of feet in the air.

On Tuesday night, passenger Steven Kelly was sitting four rows back from the front of the plane when a man wearing a backpack walked up to the front twice during the last half of the four-hour flight.

The man approached the flight attendant both times and asked to get off the plane while it was still in the air.
