An American Airlines flight from Florida to California diverted in Texas after a woman began screaming to other passengers to repent and that everyone would die.
Woman Screams “Repent! We’re All Gonna Die!” On American Airlines Flight, Forcing Diversion
The outburst occurred last Wednesday, September 28, 2022, on American Airlines flight 1296 from Miami (MIA) to Los Angeles (LAX). The troubled woman showed no signs of disturbance prior to the flight or during the first two hours in the air, but suddenly burst out in prophetic warning, according to a passenger who spoke with The Daily Beast.
“It’s an early flight… so we were all kind of just working and minding our own business,” the passenger said by phone after finally getting to L.A. “All of a sudden, we heard screaming coming from the back, and a flight attendant was saying to a passenger, like, ‘Are you in danger? Is anything going on? Are you OK?’ And she said, ‘No, we’re all gonna die. Repent, repent!”
Perhaps she had a nightmare? She then went up to two passengers and made a direct plea:
“Repent, repent, we’re all gonna die!”
She then began yelling,‘”Redemption is coming! Redemption is coming!”
She did not say anything else. Flight attendants were able to restrain the woman and placed flex cuffs on her. One flight attendant asked her if she “needed” to get off the plane and when she responded affirmatively, the plane began a rapid descent into El Paso, Texas (ELP).
American Airlines did not want to speak about the incident, confirming only that a “disturbance in the cabin involving an unruly customer” occurred and that after the diversion, “Local law enforcement met the plane upon arrival and the flight has since departed with all remaining customers.”
Not only that, though. The plane was searched for bombs before it took off again.
It is not clear if the woman will be charged (but I do hope American Airlines sends her a bill for the extra fuel and any other related expenses). Surprsingly, no video or even still images have emerged from the flight.
The truth is we are all going to die. But boisterously proselytizing (if that is what she was doing) on an airplane is not okay. Hopefully, the woman will seek help.
